In English we have been looking at the daring act of Phillippe Petit who walked between the Twin Towers in 1974 on a tight-rope!

The Man Who Walked Between the Towers by Mordicai Gerstein (Author, Illustrator)

The story of a daring tightrope walk between skyscrapers. In 1974, French aerialist Philippe Petit threw a tightrope between the two towers of the World Trade Center and spent an hour walking, dancing, and performing high-wire tricks a quarter mile in the sky. We have studied this book with the purpose of writing a news report of the event and a biography all about Petit's life.
