Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Sam Roberts

“New York City is like a great toy chest that you can open up daily and always discover some new treasure,” Bill Zimmerman writes in his introduction to “City Doodles: New York” (Gibbs Smith, $9.99). And what a fine way to wile away the final days of summer.

The little book, with illustrations by the artist Tom Bloom, is an interactive invitation to readers to fill in incomplete line drawings with their own pencil. Readers of all ages can complete the placards for a parade, decorate the library lions and add more levels to the Guggenheim Museum. As the book asks you to imagine, how many things can you do in a New York minute? Lots, it turns out.
