Once the World’s Fair
Minimal plot, plenty of gee-whiz. Huge lightweight fun. Sep 28, Bill rated it liked it Shelves: fiction , scifi-fantasy. YA, lots of good science, fairly simplistic plot line, no one in any real danger, high school age hero. Feb 24, Emily rated it really liked it. An entertaining 'juvenile' although I would class it more as YA science fiction novel.
Bill is the winner of a high school essay contest for which the prize is to work for a year at the World's Fair in the Martian Pavilion. The Fair is being held this year on a space station 50, miles up from Earth. There are real Martians in the Pavilion. Bill's essay suggested there might be life on Pluto, and explained what that might look like.
Bill wants to be a xenobiologist when he grows up.

Desp An entertaining 'juvenile' although I would class it more as YA science fiction novel. Despite the fact that, as of , there are no Space Station Worlds Fairs, live Martians, or anything resembling nuclear space ships, this is a very believable work. It was written in , just following the moon landing, when just about everybody believed that these things would all come to pass in the near future besides, maybe, the live Martians thing.
The plot is enjoyable and Bill is a quite relatable character, although he does seem more intelligent and mature than your average 17 year old. I found the ending to be slightly abrupt and just a tad bit disappointing, so I would really enjoy reading reading more about Bill and what happens next with both the Martians and the Plutonians. Mar 25, Dixie rated it really liked it Shelves: books-i-own. I read this when I was maybe 13 or 14 -- some 40 years ago.

It has the shape of a big white bird with the legs of an elephant, whose long conical beak and crest had the colours of the rainbow. It was created by German designer Heinz Edelmann who is best known for his work on the animated film, Yellow Submarine , who also gave it the name Curro , an Andalusian pet form of Spanish male name Francisco.
The hot Sevillian summer was largely abated by a microfilter water air conditioning system throughout the site, principally along the main avenues and streets, under canopied sections both of tensile fabric and greenery. Visitors were sprayed with cool mist in various locations, and could make use of the numerous fountains and wading pools to cool off. The Government of Canada donated the Canadian Pavilion for use as a new trade school.

So to many it seems a logical next step to call on the wealthy corporations to pour some of their money into sponsoring a world's fair which could lead to a revival of civic building.

Respected Chicago businessman Thomas G. Ayers has been named to head a special committee set up to promote the world's fair. His position in the commercial community gives Mr. Ayers, retired chairman of Commonwealth Edision Company, a head start in the battle to secure the substantial financial backing from private sources that would be essential to mount the fair. Perhaps equally important are Mr. Ayer's close ties to Mayor Byrne. Recently she selected him to head the Chicago School Board -- only to see him forced out by minority interests who demanded the appointment of a black.
