The Boy Who Saved Cleveland

James Cross Giblin; illustrations by Michael Dooling

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

If not for Seth Doan, the city of Cleveland wouldn’t exist today... In 1798, Cleveland, Ohio, was in danger of being wiped out by a malaria epidemic. Based on fact, this book tells the remarkable story of Seth Doan, a young boy whose heroic efforts kept his family and neighbors alive and ultimately put the city of Cleveland on the map. J im Giblin’s first full-length work of historical fiction, this chapter book is perfect for kids of that in-between age—too old for picture books and too young for full-length novels.
The Boy Who Saved Cleveland is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
