From the Publisher
Nathan has a special relationship with the Elevator Man in his building. He gets to help move the old-fashioned elevator from floor to floor and wear the fancy cap on occasion. But when a new, more modern elevator gets installed, Nathan worries that things won't stay the same. With lively watercolors and a flowing narrative.
When the elevator in a building in the 1950s is modernized, a young resident misses the operator.
