The Man Who Walked Between Two Towers

This book is about a man walking between two towers and it was illegal so the police said to go to the court. He went and then he said to preform for the children. This amazing book was written and illustrated by Mordicai Gertsein. He has written over 30 books. He lives with wife, Susan Harris, and daughter, Risa in Northampton, Massachusetts. He had a friend Phillipe Petite and enjoyed his street dancing. Phillipe Petite was the reason why Mordicai wrote this book. He also loved New York City, so he wanted to write about it. This book won the Caldecott Award in 2004. It is very neatly illustrated and it was detailed too. The Man Who Walked Between Two Towers is illustrated better than Kitten's First Full Moon because that book is mostly colorless, it's only black and white. I think it was colored with pencil. The Man Who Walked Between the Two Towers is beautifully colored with color.
