Overview

Frank Lloyd Wright, Zaha Hadid, and Rem Koolhaas band together to build the "perfect birdhouse" for their newfound friend--a wayward Rufous-Sided Towhee named Feathers Wing. Along his way, Feathers interacts with Mies Van Der Rohe, Le Corbusier, and Louis Henri Sullivan, while striving to find a dwelling with a difference. Don't worry, "The Adventures of Frankie Lloyd Wonder: A Bird's-Eye View of Architecture" isn't some staid quasi-historical fictional book--it's fun and it could even stimulate you to explore a career in architecture?

A unique blend of fiction and nonfiction (a concluding Reference chapter supplies some relevant "real" information about architecture and architects) "The Adventures of Frankie Lloyd Wonder: A Bird's-Eye View of Architecture" has all of the ingredients for a fun tale with role models, teamwork, compassion in helping others, and, most of all, developing a strong appreciation for creativity.

* for readers in Grades 4 - 6
