One of the most exciting and memorable stories in the history of the World Trade Towers is that of Philippe Petit, a French man who walked a tightrope between the massive monuments in 1974. As we approach the 10 year anniversary of 9/11, the amazing story of Petit's daring feat between the world's tallest buildings is the title tale on a new Scholastic Storybook Treasures release: THE MAN WHO WALKED BETWEEN THE TOWERS...AND MORE INSPIRING TALES. Narrated by Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal, this is an animated adaptation of the lyrical Caldecott Award-winning book by Mordecai Gerstein. Directed and animated by Michael Sporn, with music by Michael Bacon (of the Bacon Brothers), the production is created for children ages 5 to 10. Other stories on this inspiring DVD include Miss Rumphius, the true story of Miss Rumphius who made the world a more beautiful place with a handful of seeds (narrated by Claire Danes); Crow Boy, a small boy who is different from the others and who gains acceptance when he imitates the voices of crows in the school talent show; and The Dinosaurs of Warehouse Hawkins, written by Barbara Kerley, illustrated by Brian Selznick and narrated by Jonathan Pryce, the awe-inspiring tale of how Warehouse Hawkins built the first life-sized dinosaur model that stunned the world.
