The Man Who Walked Between the Towers

The story of a daring tightrope walk between skyscrapers, as seen in Robert Zemeckis' The Walk, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. In 1974, dancing, french aerialist philippe petit threw a tightrope between the two towers of the World Trade Center and spent an hour walking, and performing high-wire tricks a quarter mile in the sky.

This picture book captures the poetry and magic of the event with a poetry of its own: lyrical words and lovely paintings that present the detail, daring, and--in two dramatic foldout spreads-- the vertiginous drama of Petit's feat. The man who walked between the towers is the winner of the 2004 caldecott medal, the winner of the 2004 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award for Picture Books, and the winner of the 2006 Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Children's Video.
