About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Two city boys, Ian and Mitch, have gone to Mitch’s grandparents’ farm in Pennsylvania for part of their summer vacation. Today is their trip to the local fair. Roller coasters, merry-go-rounds and -- their favorite -- the big Ferris wheel are all there for them to enjoy.
But there are funnel cakes, cotton candy and Philly cheese steak to eat, too.
When they get to the Ferris wheel, they realize they have a serious problem. They may not be able to take their favorite ride.
Read how Ian and Mitch refuse to give up trying to solve their problem, but learn to think “outside the box” in order to overcome their unexpected difficulty.
