Product description

Amazon Review

"Trains are trips. And trips are adventures. And adventures are new ideas and romance and you can't ever know what in the world will happen which is exactly why you are going." This is precisely the species of serendipity that bounces and leaps through the pages of Maira Kalman's picture book Next Stop Grand Central, a charming tribute to New York's Grand Central Station by the artist whose murals currently spice up this historic terminal. Kalman--brilliant creator of Max the millionaire poet dog in Ooh La La (Max in Love)--not only reflects the vibrant nature of the busy hub, she paints comical portraits of the folks behind the scenes who make it all happen: "Etha delivers the mail--a litter to Mr. Pickle cannot go to Mr. Schnikle." We're also introduced to the people who "zip and zap and whiz" through Grand Central as passengers: "The woman with the blue pancake hat is going to Chinatown to buy Poo Nik Tea." Snapshots of "things you'll see" in the terminal include someone waiting patiently, someone waiting impatiently, and someone looking up. Things you won't see? Einstein sailing and the pyramids of Giza. Next Stop Grand Central is a compassionate, quirky view of a cross-section of humanity--and that, Kalman seems to be saying, is what Grand Central Station is all about. (Ages 5 and older) --Karin Snelson, Amazon.com
