Acclaimed author Dan Andreasen bases this folksy book on the real people believed to be history's tallest married couple. Nearly eight feet tall, Captain Bates arrives in Seville, Ohio, with his head sticking out the train window. He and his wife-who is just as tall-are tired of being in the circus and are looking for a nice place to live. But is Seville big enough? "The storytelling style and appealing subject matter make this book an excellent choice for reading aloud."-School Library Journal, starred review
