Author Info
Chris Van Allsburg
Chris Van Allsburg studied art and sculpture at the University of Michigan and the Rhode Island School of Design. A talented sculptor, Van Allsburg was encouraged to create picture books by author/illustrator David Macaulay. His first book, THE GARDENS OF ABDUL GASAZI, was published in 1979. JUMANJI, published two years later, won the Caldecott Medal, as did 1985's THE POLAR EXPRESS.
From the Publisher
Annotation Master storyteller and artist Chris Van Allsburg tackles the true story of 62-year-old Annie Edson Taylor with honesty and a touch of magic. Forced to close her charm school and facing financial ruin, Annie decided that she would find retirement money and fame in being the first person to go over Niagara Falls in 1901. She got a sturdy oak barrel made, filled it with pillows, and took the plunge. Unfortunately, things did not go the way she hoped. Her bittersweet story is told here, along with stunning illustrations that bring the falls to life. Van Allsburg is the author of THE POLAR EXPRESS.
