High, Linda Oatman; Lewin, Ted, illustrator. Eight-year-old Ivy Cordelia spends the summer of 1936 in Atlantic City with her photographer father, and dreams of being the girl who perches on a horse as it dives into a tank of water. no pages number in the book.

It really seems to be a stronger expression of Ted Lewin's connection to Atlantic City than that of Oatman High, but both pieces of this book are particularly strong.

I liked the author's note at the end, although I do wish it had been a little longer. The illustrations are lovely, modeled after the "linen postcards" from the 1930's and 40's. It really seems to be a stronger expression of Ted Lewin's connection to Atlantic City than that of Oatman High, but both pieces of this book are particularly strong. I sincerely enjoyed this story.

Linda Oatman High and Ted Lewin vividly recreate Atlantic City in all its 1930's heydey with this magical tale of a young girl's summer vacation.

Ivy Cordelia accompanies her photographer father on assignment at the Steel Pier and immediately falls in love with the high-diving horses. The teenage sisters who ride the flying horses befriend the young girl, as does the star of the show, Red Lips. Before she and her father leave Atlantic City, she is rewarded with a ride off the platform and into the tank below. The story comes full circle when we learn that in the following decade, Ivy Cordelia becomes the girl on the high-diving horse herself.

Oatman High's language is rich with a young girl's awe and excitement as she witnesses the spectacles of Steel Pier and the "crazy-brave" horses and riders. The text becomes poetic when the horse jumps off the platform, enhancing the suspense one might feel watching a horse fly through the air. Lewin's realistic renderings, painted to resemble the linen photographic postcards of the time, immediately transport the reader into the Atlantic City of days past.

Adults reading the story will fondly reflect on how their favorite summers shaped their own lives. Children will gaze with wonder at the amazing scenes in the book and look forward to their summer adventures.

Reading this book to my third graders evoked a powerful discussion with many layers of thinking. My students noticed the author's use of powerful words, strong verbs, great imagery and an emotional point of view. Discussion also centered around various topics brought up by Ted Lewin's pictures: the rolling chairs, steel pier, diving horses, bathing suits, boardwalk, and other items during that era. His illustrations recall a simpler time when "linen postcards" were used during the early 1930's. This book has inspired us to write our own "poetry" and "dive" deeper into that time in history. We LOVED the book! :)

This book is beautifully illustrated and is a fascinating story. We discovered it when my daughter was 7 and 2 years later we both still love this book. She recently read it to her Girl Scout troop and all 11 girls listened raptly and had a lot of questions at the end. I think it shows a wonderful slice of Americana.

I bought this book for myself only because
the horse "Red Lips" featured in this story
was actually once owned by my father.
It is beautifully illustrated and makes
a very nostalgic souvenir of a by-gone era.
Anyone from the Philadelphia metropolitan
area or South Jersey would find this bit of
local history of great interest.

Great for explaining how you can write a snapshot of a setting in narrative writing and with a circular conclusion. A terrific subject which is unknown to most children.
The author creates suspense which rivets the reader to their seat. Great choice of vocabulary is sprinkled throughout the book. Definitely appeals to 8 to 12 year olds

Original
I bought 2 of these - one for each grandchild - who each is 9 years old (and very bright). It is written for a much lower level reading/age. And it really doesn't very accurately tell the story about how the girl went blind, etc.

I wouldn't really recommend this book. Luckily one of the father's was able to give more details about what it was really like sometime ago on the boardwalk at Atlantic City. That was the only possible redeeming grace.

The illustrations are well done, and my 8 yr old daughter liked the story very much.
