Avoid Working on a Victorian Bridge! Paperback
by Tom Ratliff
Illustrated by Mark Bergin
Part of the The Danger Zone series
It'll take fourteen years, but as the son of a renowned architect, it's up to you to continue building the Brooklyn Bridge after your father's death.
You'll dig deep underwater, and some workers won't survive, but it will be a remarkable achievement that folks of the future will thank you for!
The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of the severe risks people took to ensure that bridge was built.
Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
