Stand Straight, Ella Kate

In library we have been reading Stand Straight, Ella Kate in preparation for Kate Klise's visit. Here the students are measuring themselves to see how they measured up to Ella Kate. She was a real life giantess who was 8 foot 4 inches tall.

A fictionalized biography of Ella Kate Ewing, born in 1872, who was eight feet tall by the age of seventeen and who became financially independent by traveling the country for nearly twenty years appearing at museums, exhibitions, and in circus shows.
