JOURNEY AROUND NEW YORK FROM A TO Z

Author: Martha Day Zschock; designer: Heather Zschock

This child's-eye guide to New York excites, educates, and enthralls readers with beautiful, detailed watercolor images and a fun and accessible but sophisticated text.

A proud and perky pigeon tour guide expertly escorts readers on a beautiful circuit of the city, pointing out interesting sights and fascinating facts along the way. Each page illuminates a New York theme with catchy alliterative headlines ("Journalists jot juicy jargon" or "Fifth Avenue is famous for fashion"), mini-history lessons, and fascinating facts. Thirty-two vivid pages celebrate the vibrancy, culture, and diversity of New York City. Martha Zschock's brilliant watercolor paintings provide an abundance of cheerful, authentic detail to explore, engaging readers while they become "instant experts" on one of the world's most exciting cities.

Children and adults alike will enjoy this whimsical jaunt through the alphabet and New York City. The book is also distinguished by a witty sense of humor, with its quirky pigeon-about-town narrator. The pigeon pops up on each fanciful page in surprising, amusing, and characteristically New York places. He can be found, for example, chopsticks in wing, enjoying a dim sum feast. He joins the Rockettes' kick line, appears as a balloon in the Macy's parade, rides the subway with commuters, and even turns up as conductor at Lincoln Center.
