11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Zoonie on 18 May 2009
Format: Hardcover
It is a pity to label this as a children's book, because all who know Edinburgh will be utterly charmed by the illustrations, which capture the city in a realistic, yet at the same time, romantic way.
Similarly the Edinburgh of nearly 50 years ago is there, but so is the timeless quality of the place.
We were several adults yesterday, who have lived (between us) over 100 years here, poring over the atmospheric drawings and deciding to buy copies as presents for friends and family.
The actual writing is slight, but then it was originally intended for the early reading years, so that was to be expected.
If these drawings appeared on postcards, greetings cards, posters, etc., I am sure they would be snapped up by lovers of Edinburgh.
Now I intend to purchase the author's books on Paris and New York. I anticipate further treats in store.

Miroslav Sasek is a fantastic Illustrator. He has produced books about many Capitals distilling their essence with wonderful humour. They are suitable for intelligent children from about four or five years old, but teenagers and even adults would enjoy them too.
I bought this copy for a six year old Canadian boy who visited Edinburgh last year to remind him of what he saw.

Format: Hardcover
This is a lovely book. The illustrations are fantastic, especially if you're keen on a bit of retro. I've bought this for my 6 year old son who will enjoy the facts, but have also bought the San Francisco one for my 16 year old niece who will also appreciate the design. The books would be enjoyed by many different ages.

Bought 2 of these for presents for children. It is a real trip down memory lane including some of the absent landmarks in Edinburgh. The graphics and words are a delight to see and read for an adult or child. What a treat the recipients have in store!
