Back in print for the first time in more than twenty years, Christmastime in New York City takes readers on a tour of the Big Apple all decked out for the holiday season.

In this perfect gift volume, which was named to the New York Times Best Children’s Books List in 1987, readers are invited on a tour of the city during the most wonderful time of the year. This is a charming visual journey through the magical time of Christmas in New York City and a great picture book for people of all ages.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A charming and energetic invitation to the pleasures of the Christmas season in one of the world's most exciting cities. As with her The Inside-Outside Book of New York City, Munro has chosen locations and scenes that capture the essence of New York: the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, Park Avenue lights, Christmas icons like the Medieval Court Christmas Tree in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lord & Taylor's windows and the wreathed lions at the entrance to the public library. From a panoramic cover view of Rockefeller Center's famous Christmas tree, to a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the lighted Times Square apple, ready to usher in the New Year for the crowds below, Munro's paintings are magic and memorable. All ages. (October)
From the Publisher
"Far more resplendent trees grace the elegant pages of Roxie Munro’s Christmastime in New York City, a collection of wintry urban tableaux first published in 1994. Ideal for families that visit Manhattan near Christmas (and for those who don’t but wish they could), the delicately colored, fine-line drawings yield delectable glimpses of, among other scenes, skaters on the rink at Rockefeller Plaza, performers in Radio City Music Hall and the soaring arches of St. Thomas Church." –Wall Street Journal

“Christmas in New York, whimsically illustrated. Roxie Munro…With a delicate hand, she draws incredibly detailed, magnetic scenes of cityscapes, deserts, and amusement parks filled with people, animals, and more. Christmastime in New York City, back in print for the first time in more than two decades, invites readers of all ages to delight in the Big Apple's iconic buildings and vistas — all dressed up for the holidays. From skaters sweeping across Rockefeller Center's ice rink to people pressing their faces against department store windows, Munro's illustrations express the color and excitement that can surprise even the city that never sleeps.” –TheWeek.com
