Editorial Reviews

Review

Winner of the 2012 Marion Vannett Ridgway Honor Award!

"Martin, in her children's book debut, delivers images of meditative calm; in each spread, blocks of translucent color fill in the background, leaving the contours of the pictures' subjects—hands playing instruments, bodies, buildings—outlined by the white space that remains. Martin succeeds in capturing a world of sound using only visual cues."
Publisher's Weekly

"Dazzling cityscapes and 19 cats to count make this a captivating read for all ages."
San Francisco Chronicle

"Amy Martin masters the use of color to denote emotion… This book will be treasured in one's family library, especially by music loving urbanites, and further, passed on for generations.… Symphony City encapsulates the emotive experience of listening to and playing music, a feat as it stands, but also demonstrates the power music wields to soothe, nurture, and even bring someone, in a sense, home."
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

I purchased this book for my 4 grandchildren. I gave it to them Thanksgiving. They loved the story and the illustrations. My graphic designer girl friend liked it even better. Very creative and very unique!

This book is stunning. My 3 children - ages 9, 6, and 3 - all love it. The design is incredibly smart, and the story is completely engaging for young, imaginative minds.
