9780735822962: The Giant Wheel

Take an astonishing ride on a very unusual Ferris wheel!

One day a ferris wheel appears next door to the zoo, and the animals can’t wait to try it out. At night, they slip out of  their cages and one by one, they climb into the gondolas to enjoy the view—but never did they dream they would see so far. Are they seeing their distant homelands, or are they looking into their own hearts?

About the Author:

 

ANDRE USATSCHOW was born in Russia and currently lives in Moscow. He is the author of more than seventy children’s books, which have been translated around the world.   ALEXANDRA JUNG was born in Lüdinghausen, Germany, and now lives in Freiburg. She studied at the Technical College in Hamburg, Germany, and at the École des Art Décoratifs in Strasbourg, France. Her work has been exhibited throughout Europe.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 3–A cast of animals escapes the zoo one night to ride a newly built giant Ferris wheel next door. While soaring high above the clouds, the creatures each see their old homes and families. The polar bear glimpses the “cold blue sea and the glistening ice” and the crocodile sees Uncle Neil working as a ferryboat, “carrying people back and forth across the river.” To adults, the message is somewhat clear–the animals are seeing what is inside their hearts–but children would simply notice the colorful landscapes and scenery, and the walking, talking animals. The scenes are vibrant and detailed, although somewhat cartoonlike, which contrasts with the deep topic. Perhaps some parents can explain to children what the animals' visions really mean and have an interesting discussion if they can get past the visual metaphors. Then again, perhaps not.Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
