The Man Who Walked Between The Towers

As part of our literacy work, we have recently been studying a wonderful book by Mordicai Gerstein called The Man Who Walked Between The Towers.


It is based on a true story about a tightrope walker, Philippe Petit. 

Was he remarkable, reckless or responsible?
