A Walk in New York

Publisher: Walker Books

From the talented new illustrator Salvatore Rubbino comes this charming story about a boy and his father who spend an exciting day wandering around Manhattan ‘the busiest part of New York’. The vibrant retro style illustrations perfectly capture the incessant activity and the sights, smells and tastes of the big apple.

Complete with a satisfying map of the route on the first page, the companiable walk takes the pair to all the main landmarks in the city, from Greenwich Village to the Hudson River, and the Empire State Building, so tall it needs a special fold-out section. Every page offers a sprinkling of interesting facts, and there’s plenty of clever detail so there’s always more to see.
