Reviews

Hannigan sticks closely to historical records in tracing the causes and course of the fire as well as the architectural and infrastructure improvements wrought in its wake and the fair's artistic and technological highlights. ...Graudins overlays the infodumps with small, intimate panels depicting period-clad people with appealingly open expressions (and, often, puppies in tow) in accurately drawn settings. A fictive plotline adds a strong "you are there" feel to this informative account.--Kirkus
