Watch out, sky boys-don’t slip in the rain or let the wind whisk you away!

Have you heard? They’re building the Empire State building. Look- you can see the Sky Boys, up hundreds of feet, eating lunch on a beam. With their hammers and rivets and welders, they’re bound to finish in record time.

Join a schoolboy of New York and watch the progress as this book, written engagingly in second person, takes you back to the Great Depression era.
