Publisher Comments:

and#160;
When a group of students wins a trip to New York City, accompanied by their teacher, they arenand#8217;t sure where to start. Soon enough, theyand#8217;re roaming the city, from the Statue of Liberty to Times Square, from Chinatown to Central Park, in order to discover what makes New York one of the greatest cities on Earth.

Structured like the popular song and#147;The Twelve Days of Christmas,and#8221; Tonya Boldenand#8217;s text captures the fun and fast-paced spirit of New York, while Gilbert Fordand#8217;s illustrations embody its dynamic beauty and odd quirks. The book includes a map of all five boroughs of the city highlighting kid-friendly places to see when you visit.

Praise for 12 Days of New York

"Ford's illustrations, rendered in a variety of media including India ink, gouache, dyes and Photoshop, depict the city in bright, glowing tones that are cartoonlike but manage to capture the essence of the people and places."

and#151;Kirkus Reviews

"Fordand#8217;s mixed-media art features chunky India ink outlines and a broad palette that portrays afternoon, twilight, indoor, and outdoor scenes with equal skilland#133; While the venues are recognizable, the adventurous perspectives Ford uses gives them a welcome freshness."

and#151;Publishers Weekly

"Richly colored cartoon illustrations, with a dialogue bubble here and there for added humor, depict the wide-eyed characters and their surroundings with a fair amount of detail without overwhelmingand#133; A jolly jaunt introducing a few classic Big Apple landmarks."

and#151;Booklist

"Vibrant illustration."

Synopsis:

Facsimile edition of a beloved, long out-of-print children's classic.

The charm and uniqueness of New York City was never more beautifully and whimsically created for children than in Miroslav Sasek's This Is New York. First published in 1960, his vision of New York nearly forty years ago still remains fresh: the hustle and bustle of Times Square, the ethnic neighborhoods, the awe-inspiring architecture. Sasek captured the essences of New York that delight children and parents, many of whom who will remember the book from their childhood.
