Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3Ms. Rooney and her Polk Street crowd are visiting New York City, and Emily Arrow faces a dilemma. She has been dubbed the "New York City Expert" and all she knows about it is that her Aunt Caroline lives in the Bronx. Worse than that, she has let her class down by not watering the "This Is Life" plants and allows Sherri Dent to take the rap. She finds a "baby book" at the library to help her learn about the Big Apple but has to keep it hidden between a fat book on plants and a biography of Betsy Ross. As the bus carrying the young travelers wends its way through the city, Emily alternates between impressing them with her knowledge of the city's landmarks and supplying readers with some fascinating information about Betsy Ross. Sherri finally learns that she has been dubbed as the plant killer and Emily apologizes. The trip ends with a surprise sleep-over at Aunt Caroline's and readers leave the crowd happy, tired, and full of pizza. Sims's occasional full-page black-and-white sketches add humor and character to the story. A 45-page guide to New York City complete with maps and phone numbers is included. An easy-to-read chapter book for fans of the series or for youngsters planning to visit New York City.Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL
