The Man Who Walked Between the Towers was written by Mordicai Gerstein and was was quick and easy to read. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy it. It may not be that the book itself was not enjoyable, I just could not get passed the fact that I had watched a documentary about the event depicted in this book and was bored out of my mind. The pictures are colorful and give you a good idea of the amazing feat performed by Philippe. It is a fun story that will help give children a history about the towers - something exciting, but not terrifying. It might be a good way to remember the towers in a positive way and use it as an introduction to a discussion about 9-11.
I know we will discuss this book more in class. I'm looking forward to hearing the input from my professor and classmates. I'm finding it difficult to write more; however, once I am able to discuss this book more with others I'll see if my opinion changes and will update this entry.
