Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—A day in the city begins and ends peacefully with the ticking of the alarm clock and a child's sleeping sounds. The pages in-between showcase scenes from the bustling streets against the backdrop of skyscrapers and public transportation. The rhymes that accompany the story are short but evocative. The day holds many sights and sounds that crescendo with the louder noises. The artist uses a vivid mix of primary and secondary colors to set the stage. At night, the city is transformed using a rich purple with the only light coming from the moon, house lights, and car headlights. Like a scene from a movie, the last spread zooms out of the boy's room to the silhouette of the city and shows a suspension bridge leading into the darkness. A more chaotic page shows lanes of cars with honking horns accompanied by a descriptive rhyme, "Drivers shouting,/In-and-outing." The sounds are placed above or below the objects producing them. The placement and size of the descriptor are never the same. The words "RUMBLE" and "RATTLE" are concealed within a trestle carrying a subway car. Close inspection reveals the boy in almost every scene. The concept is similar to Marilyn Singer's City Lullaby (Clarion, 2007), but more straightforward. A fine selection for children wanting to transport themselves to another place without the hassle of travel.—Lori A. Guenthner, Baltimore County Public Library, Randallstown, MD

Review

“In spare, elegant illustrations, the city is seen on many levels – underground, street and elevated – with the boy moving through a forest no less mysterious than the jungle room of Maurice Sendak.” New York Times Book Review

 

The irresistible cityscapes and playful text will have young urbanites and those anticipating big city sojourns clamoring for repeat visits” —Booklist



“A vivid sliver of city life.” —Kirkus
