Elvira Woodruff - Orphan of Ellis Island, The

Orphan of Ellis Island, The

Author: Elvira Woodruff

  • AGES 9 - 11 
  • Genre Historical Fiction, Fantasy
In a fanciful and rich story, Dominic Cantori hides from his class tour of Ellis Island because he doesn't want anyone to know that he is an orphan. He falls asleep in a closet, and wakes up in the now-closed and deserted museum. He picks up one display telephone after another and talks to the recorded voices of immigrants who tell about their lives in faraway places. To Dominic's amazement, an old Italian immigrant answers him, and before he knows it, he's transported back in time to Italy in 1908.
