...Brooklyn Bridge. Karen Hesse is a highly regarded author of books for children and teens. This one is intended for near teens and very early teens. Brooklyn Bridger was released in 2008 and is set in 1903. The protagonist is 14 year old Joseph Michtom whose parents had recently invented the Teddy Bear which was a commercial success from day one. The story is told in the first person of Joseph.
Ultimately Brooklyn Bridge is about Joseph's maturation process as he is surrounded by loving parents, younger siblings, and a large extended immigrant family. It is a nice story but it is not as good as many wonderful books for the target age range. I describe Brooklyn Bridge is good but not special. Narration is excellent.
