Synopses & Reviews
It begins with an empty city lot and ends with a gleaming new building. But what happens in between? With his trademark sketch pad, watercolors, and sharp eye for atmosphere and detail, Elisha Cooper takes note of what goes on at a construction site -- from the obvious to the not-so-obvious. And curious young builders will relish his funny observations and unfailing scrutiny. There are backhoes that look like messy eaters, and lots of hammering that sounds like do-re-mi. Come see (and hear) the building -- it's going up now!
