Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3 Up–This depiction of Manhattan began as two continuous scrolls, one of the East Side, one of the West Side, each 37 feet long, which were published in 2001 (Random). The drawings in pen and ink depict the city skyline from the perspective of a boat tour taken around the island by Pericoli. Spreads show consecutive views of the East Side, occasionally identifying buildings and points of interest. Open the book from the opposite cover to see images of the West Side. A personal narrative accompanies the drawings, affording insight into the creative processes of writing and illustrating. This is a fascinating work, but may be of limited interest as its appeal will be greatest to those who live in or have visited the Big Apple.–Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
