4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully designed tribute to New York City, 15 Mar 2014
This review is from: In New York (Library Binding)
‘In New York’ written and illustrated by Marc Brown is picture book for slightly older preschoolers and school children that allows reader in a fun way to learn many interesting things about the City that never sleeps.

Marc Brown who is mostly known for his Arthur Adventure Series in his latest book has managed to make some kind of combination of a children guide for navigating through the city and the dedication to all the exciting things his beloved city provides.

The story starts when the narrator was eight years old, and one night his family boarded a train in Erie, Pennsylvania moving to New York City, the most exciting author had ever seen. He is saying that as a child he dreamed of living there and now he does, in an old house near the Hudson River. The author introduces briefly the history of the city, and ends with how this marvelous city looks beautiful and offers a lot of excitement.

On pages of ‘In New York’ many references can be found to the author earlier works such as The Musical & Arthur appearing as a balloon in Thanksgiving Parade or the Times Square billboard for the ZooZical which will be fun to those parents and children who are familiar with Brown’s rich opus.

The hand-drawn illustrations are filled with cheerful colors and lots of detail, and older children will have a lot of fun finding all the little things that the author hid on his cheerful looking pictures.

Therefore Marc Brown’s ‘In New York’ is beautifully designed tribute to New York City, the book with which your child wherever is living all around the world will certainly want to visit this exciting city full of possibilities and fun.
