Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Anyone interested in Brooklyn can find here a wealth of information about its brownstones, the Grand Army Plaza and Public Library, the Museum of Art and Children's Museum, The Botanical Garden, Prospect Park and its Carousel, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Coney Island. The facts, including history and description, are detailed along the bottom of seven double pages. But it is the pop-ups that greet us as we turn the pages that make this book really special. Each one is designed by a different artist or artists, with a special Sendak that includes Walt Whitman on the cover. And each uses devices that happily contribute to the feel of the site, for example the flipping leaves in the garden, or Sabuda's stunning Museum facade. What a great way to discover or rediscover Brooklyn. 2000, Little Simon/Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing Division. Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz

We loved this book. It took us back in time, back to youth, and back to Brooklyn! It is rare to find a beautifully artistic pop-up book designed for adults, offering so much to share with our children! Thank you Brooklyn Public Library for a wonderful gift to us all!
