Fireboat: The Heroic Adventures of the John J. Harvey
by Maira Kalman

This is the inspiring true story of the John J. Harvey — a retired New York City fireboat reinstated on September 11, 2001.
Originally launched in 1931, the Harvey was the most powerful fireboat of her time. After the September 11 attacks, with fire hydrants at Ground Zero inoperable and the Hudson River's water supply critical to fighting the blaze, the fire department called on the Harvey for help. There were adjustments — forcing water into hoses by jamming soda bottles and wood into nozzles with a sledgehammer — and then the fireboat's volunteer crew pumped much-needed water to the disaster site. The John J. Harvey proved she was still one of New York's Bravest!

The Man Who Walked Between the Towers

This picture book captures the poetry and magic of the event with a poetry of its own: lyrical words and lovely paintings that present the detail, daring, and — in two dramatic foldout spreads — the drama of Petit's feat.
