"I’m talking about Philippe Petit, the man who inspired the film “Man on Wire”, the guy who, in 1974, walked a high wire strung between the twin towers of the World Trade Center.
Such an unlikely happening…. such an inspiring, brave story. Why not share it with your children on a level they can understand and that would be entertaining and exciting for them, as well? Scholastic debuted this story, The Man Who Walked Between the Towers, along with three other fascinating tales on one inspiring DVD.
The story of Petit’s accomplishment that morning was written into a children’s story by Mordicai Gerstein and animated beautifully (in Scholastic’s classic way) by Michael Sporn. Jake Gyllenhaal narrates this daredevil tale, and it will truly leave you breathless, as if you were standing beneath Petit as he performed this daring act years ago". Source: www.musesofmegret.com
