Niagara Falls, Or Does It?

Creator: Henry Winkler, Lin Oliver | Juvenile Fiction - 2006-01-01

Fourth-graders Hank, Ashley, and Frankie are excitedly preparing for a magic show at the Rock 'N Bowl when Hank's creative alternative to an English essay lands him in detention and grounded the week of the show.

Publisher: ABDO

About this book
For Hank, fourth grade does not start out on the right foot. First of all, he gets called to the principal's office on the very first day of school. Then the first assignment his teacher gives him is to write five paragraphs on "What You Did This Summer." Hank is terrified-writing one good sentence is hard for him, so how in the world is he going to write five whole paragraphs? Hank comes up with a plan: instead of writing what he did on vacation, he'll show what he did. But when Hank's "living essay" becomes a living disaster, he finds himself in detention. Strangely enough, however, detention ends up becoming a turning point in his life.

Niagara Falls All Over Again

Creator: Elizabeth McCracken | Fiction - 2002-11-26

From the Hardcover edition.

Publisher: Delta

About this book
By turns graceful and knowing, funny and moving, Niagara Falls All Over Again is the latest masterwork by National Book Award finalist and author of The Giant’s House, Elizabeth McCracken. Spanning the waning years of vaudeville and the golden age of Hollywood, Niagara Falls All Over Again chronicles a flawed, passionate friendship over thirty years, weaving a powerful story of family and love, grief and loss. In it, McCracken introduces her most singular and affecting hero: Mose Sharp — son, brother, husband, father, friend ... and straight man to the fat guy in baggy pants who utterly transforms his life.To the paying public, Mose Sharp was the arch, colorless half of the comedy team Carter and Sharp. To his partner, he was charmed and charming, a confirmed bachelor who never failed at love and romance. To his father and sisters, Mose was a prodigal son. And in his own heart and soul, he would always be a boy who once had a chance to save a girl’s life — a girl who would be his first, and greatest, loss.Born into a Jewish family in small-town Iowa, the only boy among six sisters, Mose Sharp couldn’t leave home soon enough. By sixteen Mose had already joined the vaudeville circuit. But he knew one thing from the start: “I needed a partner,” he recalls. “I had always needed a partner.”Then, an ebullient, self-destructive comedian named Rocky Carter came crashing into his life — and a thirty-year partnership was born. But as the comedy team of Carter and Sharp thrived from the vaudeville backwaters to Broadway to Hollywood, a funny thing happened amid the laughter: It was Mose who had all the best lines offstage.Rocky would go through money, women, and wives in his restless search for love; Mose would settle down to a family life marked by fragile joy and wrenching tragedy. And soon, cracks were appearing in their complex relationship ... until one unforgivable act leads to another and a partnership begins to unravel.In a novel as daring as it is compassionate, Elizabeth McCracken introduces an indelibly drawn cast of characters — from Mose’s Iowa family to the vagabond friends, lovers, and competitors who share his dizzying journey — as she deftly explores the fragile structures that underlie love affairs and friendships, partnerships and families.An elegiac and uniquely American novel, Niagara Falls All Over Again is storytelling at its finest — and powerful proof that Elizabeth McCracken is one of the most dynamic and wholly original voices of her generation.From the Hardcover edition.

Niagara Falls, An Intimate Portrait

Creator: John Grant, Ray Jones | Travel - 2006-01

Through color photographs and archival images, interviews with people who work at the falls, and a detailed chronology of events, this book weaves together the contemporary and the historical to create an unforgettable, intimate portrait of ...

Publisher: Globe Pequot

About this book
Once a place sacred to the Iroquois, Niagara Falls has been exploited by profiteers, protected by preservationists, harnessed for mechanical power, and reincarnated into the honeymoon capital of the world. Niagara Falls: An Intimate Portrait, the companion to the PBS television program, celebrates the history of the falls and examines human progress - and human folly - on a grand scale. Fifteen million people are lured to Niagara each year by the sheer power and majesty of the water. You'll meet some of them: Maid of the Mist captains, wedding chapel ministers, honeymooners of all nationalities, light-show engineers, and thrill seeking daredevils. You'll also learn about the early explorers; the warriors who fought bloody battles for control of the falls; the first bridge builders and hydroelectric engineers; and the movie stars and tightrope walkers who attracted an awestruck public. Through color photographs and archival images, interviews  with people who work at the falls, and a detailed chronology of events, this book weaves together the contemporary and the historical to create an unforgettable, intimate portrait of Niagara Falls - a place entirely beyond the ordinary.

    TORONTO GUIDE FALLS SHORT

    2/5 Bluebell (New York City) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's Toronto: with Niagara Falls & the Niagara Wine Region (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) In comparison to materials given to me by my hotel, which listed places to go and things to do, Fodor's Toronto falls very short. Their listing of hotels and restaurants left some important ones off, and it was hard to understand their small map showing locations of hotels, in terms of how close a particular hotel is to a certain district of the city (their map might make a hotel appear to be 2 blocks away from a neighborhood, when in fact it was much further away). Fodor's didn't supply a full fold-out map of the city and transit system that I have seen in other travel books. It would also be helpful to know if a hotel is close to a subway station.

    Lets Get Wet in Niagara Falls

    5/5 dream factory (Triangulum, M33) - See all my reviews This review is from: Field Trip to Niagara Falls (Geronimo Stilton, No. 24) (Paperback) The following review is by Isabella (6 yrs) one of the younger members of dream factory."I really like this book #24. It is about a mouse who went on a field trip with his nephew. They went to Niagara Falls. His classmates also went. They slept in tents. They saw a great rainbow on top of Niagara Falls. Then the forest started on fire. And eveyone worked together to put it out."Parental comment: Our six year old is positively addicted to this Stilton series. Thanks to it she has improved her reading skills dramaticaly. In this issue your child shall learn about the history of the falls, the anatomy of a tent, the smell of a skunk, adventure seekers, native americans, woodland animals, trees, wow what a book.A wholesome healthy children's adventure. Teaching teamwork in regards to putting out that fire. And nurturung a love for nature at an early age.

    Fun early chapter book read

    5/5 Vanessa Maine (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Field Trip to Niagara Falls (Geronimo Stilton, No. 24) (Paperback) Geronimo wants to impress his nephew's pretty teacher, and invites the entire class to a field trip to Niagara Falls. The trip turns out to be quite an adventure: the kids are a handful, Geronimo has to set up camp (with a little long-distance help from his more adventurous sister Thea), and even has to rescue a kid that falls in the river! After all that trouble to impress his love interest, she finds and marries her long-lost love!Geronimo Stilton series is a good transitional reading between picture books and chapter books. The narrative is broken into easy to read chapters, and interspersed with fun typography accents that break the text into more manageable chunks and also encourage "expressive reading". The book is richly illustrated and appealing to the eye. Fun story as well! My daughter loves Geronimo Stilton books and is venturing into reading them on her own.

    Field Trip To Niagra Falls -- Great Book:)

    5/5 Vetter (Arlington Heights, IL) - See all my reviews This review is from: Field Trip to Niagara Falls (Geronimo Stilton, No. 24) (Paperback) My daughter Paige (8 1/2 yrs old) really enjoyed reading this book as well as "Lost Treasure of the Emerald Eye".

This review is from: Niagara Falls Raging Rapids (Amazon Video) The description for this program regarding the Virgin Mary has nothing to do with the content of the program. It's a nice documentary about the history and future of the greatest waterfall in North America. Whether you've been there or not, this program will tell you things you didn't previously know about the falls. Along with stunning views of the falls, there are segments on finding the depths of the historical and present plunge basins giving data for the travel of the falls over the millenia, the dangers faced by tourists and thrill seekers and the professionals who rescue them and a couple of guys who track down previously undocumented waterfalls in the area. This program is well worth the hour to watch it. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 28, 2012
