In this delightfully original take on nonfiction, Dave Eggers tackles one of the most famous architectural and natural monuments in our country - the Golden Gate Bridge. Cut-paper illustrations by Tucker Nichols ensures this book feels like a special object, and the narrative's sly humour makes the topic perfectly accessible for kids enthusiastic about nonfiction along with kids looking for a neat, easy-to-understand story that just happens to be about one of the most famous sites in our country. This book also acts as a lovely companion to Her Right Foot.
