Annie Taylor, a short, plump and fussy sixty-two year old widow, runs a charm school, right by Niagara Falls. When this starts to fail, she resolves to find fame and fortune by being the first person ever to go over the thundering waters of Niagara Falls in a barrel. Readers of all ages will warm to this inspiring story of bravery, as they take the roller coaster ride of a lifetime over the falls.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Astonishing" * The Sunday Times *
"Van Allsburg adeptly turns an oddball historical footnote into an accessible adventure story . . . and Van Allsburg's trademark sepia-toned pencil drawings are, as always, superb." * New York Times *
"Fascinating...artfully illustrated with intelligence and sophistication." * The School Librarian *
"A fabulous story, narrated through vivid prose and juxtaposed with Allsburg's sepia art work, which is deeply evocative of early 20th-century America." -- Vanessa Lewis * The Bookseller *
"An unusual, stunning and inspirational book." -- jake Hope * The Bookseller *
