Another excellent living book about someone we don't hear a lot about - Mr Otis, the inventor of the everyday elevator. Elisha Otis made buildings more than 6 stories possible with his invention of the safety break on the lifts. Perfectly done!

A fun youth biography that tells the story of the man who invented the elevator. Very interesting!
