Journal Entry 1 by quietorchid from Saint Paul, Minnesota USA on Saturday, November 14, 2015
A Caldecott Award winning account of Phillippe Petit's walk between the World Trade Center Towers (now known as the Twin Towers). A book of wonder and celebration that such a thing could happen, and that memory of grace and joy remains long after 9/11.

Registered in honor of the people of France.

Fly far little book!

Un livre-témoignage, empli de vie, de poésie et d'espoir.
Les dessins sont très beaux, le dernier est le plus émouvant : la réverbération des deux tours dans la mémoire des hommes.
Un livre que j'emmène tout naturellement à Paris, et qui je l'espère voyagera longtemps, en hommage à toutes les victimes d'attentats.

Nice artwork, colours. Thank you for sharing.

I took this BD von Mordicai Gerstein with me at the Parisian meet up today, read it in the train, and enjoy it, because I saw a few years ago a film in the TV about Philippe Petits Twin Towers walk. It was really a Incredible performance!
I'll take this grafik novel with me back to Germany. Another country for this travellings book (USA, France, Germany).
Thank you for sharing, tenscentpistol!

Sorry for my englisch, I'm French, live now in Germany, and... my englisch in the school is such a long time ago :)))

Ich wollte das Buch nicht einfach so freilassen und habe gewartet, bis ich eine Person finde, die sich wirklich dafür interessiert. Nun habe ich es heute beim Meetup in Kiel an Beithe weitergegeben.
Ich hoffe, es wird Dir auch gut gefallen :)

Ich habe das Buch heute vom Meetup mitgenommen.
Ich werde es bestimmt bald lesen. Und nicht in der Wildnis freilassen. Versprochen.
