Review:

Poor little Lori. All he wants is to go see Times Square, but somehow he is thwarted every step of the way. First he takes a subway but gets out at South Ferry. Then he takes a bus but finds himself at 242nd Street. So he tries a taxi, and here's what happens: The driver says, "Do you have enough money to pay me?" Lori answers, "What a silly question! I am much too little to have enough money for a taxi." So the driver says, "Please get out then." Will Lori ever get to Times Square? Maybe with a little help from a very... slow... moving... friend.

The incomparable Maurice Sendak illustrates Amos Vogel's enormously amusing story, which first appeared in 1963 and has been rereleased for a new generation of lucky readers. Lori's melodramatic range of emotions throughout his arduous day is pure delight for fans of Sendak's familiar artwork, as seen in such classics as Where the Wild Things Are and In the Night Kitchen. Try not to be overly concerned at the idea of a small child wandering the streets of New York alone. This was written in another era, after all, and the silliness factor far outweighs the "unsafe" aspect. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

About the Author:

Amos Vogel was born and educated in Vienna and came to America during the War. He founded Cinema 16, which was at one time the world’s largest film society, sat on international film juries, and has written and lectured on films.



Maurice Sendak’s children’s books have sold over 30 million copies and have been translated into more than 40 languages. He received the 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are and is the creator of such classics as In the Night Kitchen, Outside Over There, Higglety Pigglety Pop! and Nutshell Library. In 1970 he received the international Hans Christian Andersen Medal for Illustration, in 1983 he received the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award from the American Library Association, and in 1996 he received a National Medal of Arts in recognition of his contribution to the arts in America. In 2003, Sendak received the first Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, an annual international prize for children’s literature established by the Swedish government.
