10 year old’s review: Buy, don’t borrow, this book.

Some of the words were hard.
The pictures were great.
The river froze and the ferries crashed, hahaha!
The big boss was so busy thinking about his bridge that he didn’t see the ferry coming and it smashed his foot. Not funny.

What’s bedrock?
Why did they have to dig down under the river, couldn’t they build the bridge legs on mud? Oh.
Caissons are like big wood buildings underwater so you can breathe.

The footpath before they put a floor on the bridge looks like fun, but scary.
Wow.
Let’s read it again.
