Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Children will love the repetition that is used in this charming tale of a young boy's journey. One day, Little Lori decides that he wants to visit Times Square. He sets out on his own and begins by walking to the subway. When he exits the subway, however, he is not at Times Square. Trying all forms of transportation, Little Lori continues his quest; still, he ends up everywhere except where he wants to be. In frustration, Little Lori begins to cry. A slow moving turtle offers to help, and Little Lori accepts a ride on the back of the turtle. Since the turtle moves at an extremely slow pace, we can only wonder when and if Little Lori ever achieves his goal of visiting Times Square. The illustrations are done in traditional Maurice Sendak style. The text and pictures in this book were originally copyrighted in 1963 and this book and several others of Sendak have been reissued. 2001 (orig. 1963), HarperCollins, $14.95. Ages 4 to 8.
