Description
(A Junior Library Guild Selection) In this story of scientific curiosity, for readers 5 to 8, Australian author Wendy Macdonald imagines the apocryphal experiment of Galileo, in which he disproved Aristotle's claim that heavier objects fall faster. The story begins with Massimo, a boy dropping cheese and bread from a bridge to his uncle's boat below. When Galileo observes that the two items fell at the same speed, he and Massimo both enter into a scientific inquiry that results in Galileo dropping a large and a small ball together from the top of the Tower of Pisa. Paolo Rui pictures the scene in detailed, sunlit paintings.
