GeorgeFerrisWhatAWheel[Book: Barbara Lowell, illustrated by Jerry Hoare – 2014 – 20x20cm – 36 Pages – Many colour illustrations and photos]. Have you ever ridden a Ferris wheel? You can see for miles! But when the inventor of the Ferris wheel, George Ferris, first pitched his idea, everyone thought he was crazy. A 250-foot bicycle wheel that goes around and around and carries people in train cars? Can’t be done, they said. But George proved them wrong. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Excellent for children.
