Editorial Reviews

Horn Book Magazine
Preschoolers who followed Minho around the city with his mother in One Afternoon (rev. 11/94) will recognize the routine in this companion book. The boy and his father are spending the day in the city park, walking along the paths, riding in a horse-drawn carriage, buying hot dogs and soda from a peddler, watching animals at the zoo. The oil and pencil collages feature primitively drawn figures on pages vibrant with color and activity. The sense of movement is heightened by onomato-poetic words that, in appropriately varying typefaces, whir, clop, rattle, and whoosh across the page as they describe the action taking place. Even the sound of the cotton candy machine is represented by ssss that move in circles with the operating machine. The huge hahaha that emanates from the happy little boy as he rides on the merry-go-round will be understood and appreciated by all youngsters who have enjoyed such a special day. All the greater the sense of betrayal then, when on the final page Minho is wakened by his father's "Rise and shine!" to discover that it had all been a dream. It seems a trite and unnecessary ending to what had been a joyous romp.

This companion to Heo's One Afternoon is another energized excursion; this time Minho goes with his father on a clamorous trip to New York City's Central Park. As in the previous volume, onomatopoetic words accompany a simple story, here recounting adventures on the subway, at the zoo and riding carousel horses. The train goes "clickety clack," joggers' feet "thumpa" along the paths and the cotton candy machine spins its sugar confection with a soft hissing sound. Blending collage, pencil and oil paint (in neon-bright shades of mustard, orange and pink set off by softer baby blue, creamy tan and avocado), Heo creates an animated landcape with strong visual and auditory impact. As in the work of Maira Kalman and Sara Fanelli, Heo's illustrations combine whimsical perspectives, offbeat colors and highly stylized, ethnically mixed figures and amiable animals; like Fanelli, Heo also includes cryptic text fragments from other sources, such as music and fashion reviews. Yet Heo mixes in her own refreshing brand of eccentricity and serves up artwork that is festive and fun. The ending is a bit of a letdown, but readers will likely flip back to see the man making balloon animals or the top-hatted violin player treating park visitors to an afternoon concert. Ages 3-6. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Carolyn Dennette Michaels
Flat, simple almost paper cut-out shapes illustrate a text presuming to describe a father and his small son's Sunday morning outing to a city park and zoo. They enjoy animals, a carousel, a carriage ride, and related edible treats, in what feels like New York City. The book ends with "Rise and shine!" said Minho's father, as he pulled up the blind. "Oh no, it was only a dreeeeeeeem."
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-In this simple story, Minho and his father take the subway to a park on a Sunday morning. They ride the carousel; enjoy a hot dog and a soda; look at the animals in the zoo; and watch the joggers, bicyclists, and rollerbladers. The joy of this outing is brightly captured in the dynamic collage, pencil, and oil illustrations and brief text. The flat, simple shapes fill up the double-page spreads, which include sound effects for the activities described: e.g., the wheels of a bicycle "whoosh" and the feet of a runner "thumpa." As father and son share the pleasures of this morning together, the warmth of their relationship is evident; the man holds the boy's hand, puts his arm around him on a carriage ride, and smilingly points out the various birds in the tropical display at the zoo. It is all the more disconcerting then, to turn to the last page and discover that it was all a dream. Still, the rapport between father and son and the imaginative artwork make this an excursion worth taking.-Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA
Kirkus Reviews
Any preschooler who has shed a tear upon being awakened from a too-pleasant dream will relish Heo's companion book to One Afternoon (1994). With his father in hand, Minho experiences the ideal outing, a never-ending list of adventures through the park and zoo. It begins with a ride on the subway, an encounter with joggers, a stop to watch a clown making balloons, people sailing remote-control boats on a lake, and a visit to all the best exhibits at the zoo before a ride on the carousel. Minho is aghast to wake up in his bed and to realize that it was all a beautiful dream. Heo settles on bustling activity as the theme for this book; the day's energetic flow of events is depicted in exuberant paintings filled with the artist's signature shapes and forms. Simple sound-effect words, such as the "whooshing" of bicycles and "cha cha chat" of monkeys, are interspersed throughout, and will prompt noisy give-and-take with children as Minho's day out unfolds. (Picture book. 3-5) .
