Praise

“From ancient Egypt’s great pyramids to medieval Europe’s cathedral towers, humans have always tried to build structures that reach the sky, whether out of practicality or hubris. This book showcases 13 of the world’s best-known and most influential skyscrapers . . . In clearly designed, well laid-out pages, each skyscraper is accompanied by a box that provides quick details (date of construction, architectural style, designer, height), while a time line at the top contextualizes the building.”

Booklist
About the series “Each book in this kid-friendly series showcases 13 notable artists or architects; important works (from bridges to Sculpture); or movements within the fields of art, fashion, and architecture. These comprehensive, visually appealing books are international in scope and always intelligently written.”

Booklist
“Students interested in structural design elements, architecture, urban living, or the integration of greenspaces will find plenty to glean from this fascinating look at the evolution of skyscrapers. A solid purchase for collections in need of kid-friendly books on building design.”
