Sobre l'autor

Robert Lawson was born in 1892 in New York City. He studied art for three years under illustrator Howard Giles. His career as an illustrator began in 1914, when his illustration for a poem about the invasion of Belgium was published in Harper's Weekly. In 1922, he illustrated his first children's mostra'n més book, The Wonderful Adventures of Little Prince Toofat. Subsequently he illustrated dozens of children's books by other authors, including such well-known titles as The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf and Mr. Popper's Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater. He has illustrated as many as forty books by other authors, and another seventeen books that he himself was author of, including Ben and Me: An Astonishing Life of Benjamin Franklin By His Good Mouse Amos and Rabbit Hill. His work was widely admired, and he became the first, and so far only, person to be given both the Caldecott Medal (They Were Strong and Good, 1941) and the Newbery Medal (Rabbit Hill, 1945). Ben and Me earned a Lewis Carroll Shelf Award in 1961. Lawson died in 1957 at his home in Westport, Connecticut, in a house that he referred to as Rabbit Hill, since it had been the setting for his book of the same name. He was 64.

2 stars for the story, 3.5 for the art// It would be easy to give this a 1 or 2 star rating solely based on the themes in the book (racism & slavery), but I think it's important to remember that it was written in 1940, and that it's a tribute to family and the pride Lawson had for all that his family did for their country. His striking illustrations are also filled with deep emotion.

"Your fortune lies to the west. Keep your face to the sunset . . . and one day you'll ride the greatest wheel in all the world."

When Aunt Honora reads this fortune in Conn Kilroy's tea leaves, Conn knows he is destined for greater things than his small Irish village can offer. A letter from his uncle Michael in America offering Conn a partnership in his New York contracting company sets Conn on his western adventure. Just a few short months later Conn's Uncle Patrick lures him even farther west to Chicago, where they join the hardworking crew building what some called Ferris's Folly - the first Ferris wheel - then the largest wheel in the world and the showpiece of Chicago's 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Conn's journey captures the spirit of the American industrial era - the risk and hard labor, and the moments of glory.… (més)
