Science Comics Skyscrapers--The Heights of Engineering

Science Comics Skyscrapers--The Heights of Engineering by John Kerschbaum is fascinating and clever. It's loaded with factoids about the history of building UP, beginning with the pyramids. There is a lot of detail but honestly, if rebar construction is not your passion you can fly through that part and move onto the history of the Empire State building. The quiz kid/superhero characters are good foils for exploring the ins and outs of skyscrapers. (Non-Fiction)
