It Happened at the Fair , a wonderful story about the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. Cullen, our hero, is an inventor at the fair where he hopes to sell his newest invention and keep the family farm afloat. Because of his hearing loss, Cullen has a hard time hearing investors and hires a deaf teacher to tutor him.
This is a great story of a tug-of-war of love during an exciting time in American history. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm sure you will too!
