I was interested to see when this was written - 2003. 9/11 was still so fresh. I wonder how emotional it would have been to read this only two years after. I think this is a beautiful tribute to the Towers, as well as an interesting story about Philippe Petit's daring walk across them.

Maybe I don't want to read my 5 year old a book about tightrope walker walking between the world trade center buildings illegally. It is written well and with good illustrations that has very interesting perspectives and at essential to the storytelling. This anxious mama still does not want to read it to a kid.

The cover says, "It's easy and fun!" Ha! Kindergarten to 2nd graders will have a good time with this earnestly absurd story. It's really more of an instruction book, so it could probably use a disclaimer, but I'm glad there's not one. If a kids asks to borrow your old garden hose, you'll know what they're up to...
