Synopsis

As a builder during America's Great Depression, you'll take any job you can get. But you'd better have a good head for heights, because you're about to start work on what will be the nation's pride and joy: the Empire State Building! This book explores the dizzying and sometimes deadly task of building a skyscraper, focusing specifically on the construction of the Empire State Building. The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of the dangerous and back-breaking work involved in constructing a skyscraper. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
