The Man Who Walked Between the Towers by Mordicai Gerstein.
Roaring Brook Press: Brookfield, CT, 2003.

Caldecott Award 2004

This is the story of Phillipe Petit, the young Frenchman who walked and danced for an hour on a tightrope strung between the two towers of the World Trade Center in NY in 1974. The story is presented with beauty and humor. I can imagine the two towers being a perfect place for a tightrope experience. The book was written as a memorial to the World Trade Center.
