More About the Author

Roxie Munro has been an artist from the age of six, when she won first prize in a county-wide contest for a painting of a bowl of fruit. She has supported herself all her life on her art, at one point freelancing in Washington DC as a television courtroom artist. Clients included CBS, the Washington Post, and the Associated Press. Fourteen of her paintings have been published as covers of "The New Yorker" magazine.

Roxie is an award-winning author/illustrator of more than 35 books for children, primarily nonfiction. Her books have been translated into French, Italian, Dutch, Chinese, and Japanese. Recent books: "Slithery Snakes"; "Hatch!"; "EcoMazes: 12 Earth Adventures"; "Desert Days, Desert Nights"; "Inside-Outside Dinosaurs"; and "Busy Builders".

"Roxie's a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure" and "Roxie's Puzzle Adventure" are interactive animated maze game apps; "Roxie's Doors" is a 3-D animated book app (OCG Studios, developer). Roxie also did all the art for the new product KIWiSTORYBOOKS (Kids Interactive Walk-in Story Books).

She creates oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, primarily cityscapes, which are exhibited widely in the US in galleries and museums. Roxie's work is in numerous private, public, and corporate collections.

Roxie Munro studied at the University of Maryland, the Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore), received a BFA in Painting from the University of Hawaii, attended graduate school at Ohio University (Athens), and received a Yaddo Fellowship. She lectures in museums, schools, conventions, and teaches watercolor on ships, workshops, and in the Paint in Italy program.

Many of her paintings are views from the roof of her sky-lighted loft studio in Long Island City, just across the East River from her home in mid-Manhattan. Roxie is married to the Swedish writer/photographer, Bo Zaunders.

Format: Hardcover
"Christmas In New York City" is an 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch hardback book with 27 pages. Many of the pages are full color and full page drawings/paintings of holiday scenes in New York City. The illustrations do offer a lot of detail. The slightly impressionistic stye is not my favorite style of pictures. There is practically no text in the book except for the name of the painted scene. Actually there are three pages which are totally blank(white) except for the name of scene on the opposite facing page. I don't really consider this a book; rather, I believe this to be a portfolio of the artist's work. The very last page does include a paragraph explaining the background of each of the named painted scenes in the book which is a redeeming quality of the book.
The painted scenes in the book include:
Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Rockefeller Plaza
South Street Seaport
Radio City "Music Hall"
Lord & Taylor Windows
Park Avenue
The New York Public Library
FAO Schawarz
Manhattan Skyline
Saint Thomas Church
Times Square
Unless you are an avid fan of the artist, Roxie Munro or are totally engrossed in the scenes of New York, I wouldn't buy this book. It is actually not much more than a portfolio of the artist's work. You might be better off buying Holiday picture postcards of these scenes. It would probably be cheaper.

Picture book, but really based on retail stores. Macy's, Lord and Taylor, and FEO get really big call outs (Lord and Taylor gets a four page spread). This is a definite skip.

Didn't realize when ordered it was just a picture book. That's really only negative. Was looking for a story to share with my grandchildren as Aunt just moved to New York.

A beautiful book from top to bottom and so New York at Christmastime. The artist, Roxie Munro, has a unique and colorful style that is a delight. Roxie's Inside/Outside books are also among my very favorites.
