Product Details

Praise

“Fascinating. . . Stuffed with information, drama and story, it will definitely appeal to young adults and yet be accessible to most secondary school pupils. The only difficulty will be prising it out of the hands of any nearby grown-ups.” – Linda Lawlor, The Bookbag (UK)

Praise for Eiffel’s Tower (adult edition): “In splendid detail, Jonnes examines the importance of the tower in its own historical moment.” The New York Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice)

“With flair and marvelously descriptive, ‘you-are-there’ prose, Jonnes gives Eiffel’s Tower the immediacy that only a talented writer can bestow on history.” -Jay Strafford, Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Jonnes re-creates deliciously the Belle Epoque.” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
