Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802853153, Hardcover)

Nathan thinks the man who operates the elevator in his apartment building has the best job in the world – a job that Nathan himself dreams of having when he grows up. But the elevator man has dreams of his own, and when one day the building’s elevator is replaced with an automated version, Nathan is amazed to see that everybody’s dreams have come true! / Debut author Stanley Trachtenberg’s charming story of our changing times is perfectly matched with acclaimed illustrator Paul Cox’s delightful retro illustrations to create a story children everywhere will love.
