Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-In this continuation of the series, Lisa's Uncle Harrison sends her a ticket to visit him in New York City, setting the stage for a hymn to the wonders of Manhattan Island, accompanied by rich, evocative, full-color paintings. The pup sees the tourist sights-Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, etc.-and when she is separated from her uncle in Times Square, she reports, "I'm no baby. I knew just what to do. I found a policeman-." The book is made unintentionally poignant by the presence of the Twin Towers in the city landscapes.-Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
