Again, Mirette and Bellini, of Mirette on the High Wire fame, astound us with their derring-do. As they arrive in New York to perform their tight rope act across Niagara Falls, they become embroiled in the sad situation of an immigrant boy who is not met at Ellis Island by his uncle. Who could have known that the same young lad that they befriend will prove invaluable when their dangerous act is sabotaged? The tension in this tightly woven story is not merely on the high wire, but behind the scenes as well, as the illustrations so vividly capture.
