Queen of the Falls

By Chris Van Allsburg

Another stunning visual delight from this bestselling Caldecott Medal winning picture book creator.

When this starts to fail, she resolves to find fame and fortune by being the first person ever to go over the thundering waters of Niagara Falls in a barrel. Readers of all ages will warm to this inspiring story of bravery, as they take the roller coaster ride of a lifetime over the falls.
