Favorite Author...

One of my favorite authors of children stories, Chris Van Allsburg, has a new book, Queen of the Falls. He writes and illustrates his stories, and his illustrations are wonderful.

About the book:

At the turn of the nineteenth century, a retired sixty-two-year-old charm school instructor named Annie Edson Taylor, seeking fame and fortune, decided to do something that no one in the world had ever done before—she would go over Niagara Falls in a wooden barrel.
