This interactive book-plus allows readers to learn about a quartet of the world's most classic skyscrapers--the Empire State Building in Manhattan; the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco; Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and the Bank of China tower in Hong Kong-and then build a versatile two-foot-high tower of their own. The 64-page, pocket-size book is a fascinating exploration of skyscraper design and construction, with interesting facts about the structures and their architects Shreve, Lamb & Harmon, William L. Pereira & Associates, Cesar Pelli, and I.M. Pei. Included is a deck of illustrated cards that, when formed into the tower, feature the four skyscrapers on each side. The visually stunning card tower also functions as a lamp. The innovative packaging also has a perforated opening at the top of the box that can serve as the base of the card tower.
