Description

Four stories are told simultaneously, with each double-page spread divided into quadrants. The stories do not necessarily take place at the same moment in time, but are they really one story? You’ll have to read this award winner and find out.




About the Author
David Macaulay received his bachelor of architecture degree from Rhode Island School of Design. In January 1973, Macaulay went to France to work on the first of his more than twenty-five books, "Cathedral". He then constructed a colonial Roman town ("City", 1974), erected monuments to the Pharaohs ("Pyramid", 1975), dissected the maze of subterranean systems below and essential to every major city ("Underground", 1976), built a medieval fortress ("Castle", 1977), and dismantled the Empire State Building ("Unbuilding", 1980). Macaulay is perhaps best known for "The Way Things Work" (1988). It was followed by "Black and White" (1990) for which he won the 1991 Caldecott Medal. A revised edition of "The Way Things Work" was published in 1998 followed by "Building Big", "Mosque", and "The Way We Work" (2008).
