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

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.

    Good Niagra Falls Book

    5/5 NinerFan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Where Is Niagara Falls? (Where Is?) (Kindle Edition) Occasionally I would read what my son is reading so I can monitor what his reading level is or just to learn something. Upon his very high recommendation, I read this book. Wow! He was right! This is a really good book. It begins with how Niagra Falls was formed, discovery by Native Americans, and then later by curious explorers. As it became a tourist attraction, more people came as well as daredevils who tried to thrill visitors. Harnessing the water's energy by George Westinghouse and Nikola Tesla was also discussed. There are some really good, detailed pencil drawings and nice color photographs and timeline at the end. The text is written at a Grade 3 and above level. My son said it was easy to understand. After I read it, we talked about it, and decided we both learned a lot. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 7, 2015

    5/5 Michelle (Columbus, OH) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: FURINNO Senic Delicate Arch 3 Panel Canvas on Wood Frame, 60" x 20" (Misc.) Beautiful set of artwork. This is printed on each section and not a canvas, so the edges are black. They look great spaced out so it ends up being over 48" long. Excellent set and great quality!It shipped with the hardware to hang on the walls and the backs are each made with a slot for easy and straight hanging.
