Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This very positive look at city life is informative, well designed, and a pleasure to read and explore. Booklist
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Meanwhile, back in the states The City by the Bay: A Magical Journey Around San Francisco is a book that will appeal to many children. Historical notes begin this book and fun facts end it. In between are sandwiched highlights of eight kid-magic tourist sites. The writing is clear and engaging and is an excellent representation of the city's diversity. Illustrations are by Elisa Kleven, a woman who is well known for her dedication to colorful folk art and multicultural representation. Her detailing of the whirl of color and excitement that is a great symbol of San Francisco will capture kids.
