Review: Piece by piece the towers took shape.amidst skepticism. There was no plan. Chips of broken tiles and thrown away pieces began the work of art that rose nearly 100 feet in the air. Sam, the Italian immigrant, mixed, pressed, and smoothed his pieces into what has become a US National landmark. A "recipe" for the reader's very own tower can be found at the end of the amazing story.
