Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This companion to Heo's One Afternoon is another energized excursion; this time Minho goes with his father on a clamorous trip to New York City's Central Park. As in the previous volume, onomatopoetic words accompany a simple story, here recounting adventures on the subway, at the zoo and riding carousel horses. The train goes "clickety clack," joggers' feet "thumpa" along the paths and the cotton candy machine spins its sugar confection with a soft hissing sound. Blending collage, pencil and oil paint (in neon-bright shades of mustard, orange and pink set off by softer baby blue, creamy tan and avocado), Heo creates an animated landcape with strong visual and auditory impact. As in the work of Maira Kalman and Sara Fanelli, Heo's illustrations combine whimsical perspectives, offbeat colors and highly stylized, ethnically mixed figures and amiable animals; like Fanelli, Heo also includes cryptic text fragments from other sources, such as music and fashion reviews. Yet Heo mixes in her own refreshing brand of eccentricity and serves up artwork that is festive and fun. The ending is a bit of a letdown, but readers will likely flip back to see the man making balloon animals or the top-hatted violin player treating park visitors to an afternoon concert. Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-In this simple story, Minho and his father take the subway to a park on a Sunday morning. They ride the carousel; enjoy a hot dog and a soda; look at the animals in the zoo; and watch the joggers, bicyclists, and rollerbladers. The joy of this outing is brightly captured in the dynamic collage, pencil, and oil illustrations and brief text. The flat, simple shapes fill up the double-page spreads, which include sound effects for the activities described: e.g., the wheels of a bicycle "whoosh" and the feet of a runner "thumpa." As father and son share the pleasures of this morning together, the warmth of their relationship is evident; the man holds the boy's hand, puts his arm around him on a carriage ride, and smilingly points out the various birds in the tropical display at the zoo. It is all the more disconcerting then, to turn to the last page and discover that it was all a dream. Still, the rapport between father and son and the imaginative artwork make this an excursion worth taking.

The service was great and the book came in fantastic condition in a prompt manner.

This book is not really an amazing multicultural read for children. I was disappointed, as I come from the Korean culture. This does not display Korean culture in any way, other than through the main characters name.
