Publisher Summary
Thirteen-year-old Rosie Beckett has never strayed further from her family's farm than a horse can pull a cart. Then a letter from her Aunt Euterpe arrives, and everything changes. It's 1893, the year of the World's Columbian Exposition-the "wonder of the age"-a.k.a. the Chicago World's Fair. Aunt Euterpe is inviting the Becketts to come for a visit and go to the fair! Award-winning author Richard Peck's fresh, realistic, and fun-filled writing truly brings the World's Fair-and Rosie and her family-to life.

In 1893, thirteen-year-old Rosie and members of her family travel from their Illinois farm to Chicago to visit Aunt Euterpe and attend the World's Columbian Exposition, where they encounter Buffalo Bill and Lillian Russell.

It was the last day of our old lives, and we didn't even know it. On that day, Rosie Beckett's family receives a letter - possibly the first letter they've ever received from their aunt Euterpe in distant Chicago. It is 1893, the year of the World's Columbian Exposition - the "wonder of the age." Tucked inside the pages of the letter are train tickets. Aunt Euterpe is inviting Rosie's family to the fair!
