Adapted from the text of George Ferris What a Wheel by Barbara Lowell and illustrated by Jerry Hoare, with photographs, published by Grosset & Dunlap/Penguin Core Concepts. From the back cover: Have you ever ridden a Ferris wheel? You can see for miles! But when the inventor of the Ferris wheel, George Ferris, first pitched the idea, everyone thought he was crazy. A 250-foot bicycle wheel that goes around and around and carries people in train sized cars? Can't be done, they said. But George proved them wrong.
