Tricky Vic: The Impossibly True Story of the Man Who Sold the Eiffel TowerTricky Vic: The Impossibly True Story of the Man Who Sold the Eiffel Tower by Greg Pizzoli
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Fascinating read for anyone who loves a good con- as long as they aren’t the mark! And, Robert Miller definitely duped a lot of people including Scarface himself, Al Capone. I enjoyed reading his multiple schemes. Unique artwork accompanies this middle reader nonfiction picture book.

    Will definitely look for the Snowflake book. I have a couple of granddaughters who love them, & they’ll learn a little bit too! Thanks Earl. I liked Tricky Vic, really didn’t know about him until the book.

    It took me a long time to read Tricky Vic, but I really enjoyed it. I think it’s awesome that Greg Pizzoli can write in different genres and do it well.

    The pop up books remind me of when my children were young and couldn’t wait to turn the page. I think those books are magical, especially at this time of year.
