MrFerrisAndHisWheel[Book: Kathryn Gibbs Davis, illustrated by Gilbert Ford – 2014 – 26x26cm – 46 Pages – Many colour illustrations]. It was a bizarre idea, presented by an eccentric young engineer. Yes, it might be showy, but wouldn’t the flimsy contraption collapse? Wouldn’t it be undignified? Or frightening? Finally, the young inventor was told he could try – but only with his own money and with barely enough time. Here’s the true, uplifting story of George Ferris and his dazzling, unlikely invention – an invention that would become the world’s most magical ride of all time. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good for children.
