About the Author:

Salvatore Rubbino is a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London.A WALK IN NEW YORK,his first picture book, began as a series of paintings that was short-listed for the Victoria and Albert Museum Illustration Awards. He lives in London.

From School Library Journal:

Starred Review. Grade 2–5—With a backpack over his shoulders, a T-shirted youngster and his father delight in a day in Manhattan in this entertaining and informative travelogue. The boy's first-person narration, set in casual, inviting type, is breezy and involving, making readers feel part of the adventure. In smaller type, fascinating tidbits, staggered around the page to catch attention, supply information such as the number of train platforms at Grand Central Station (44), the names of the New York Public Library's marble lions (Patience and Fortitude), and how many taxicabs (more than 12,000) ply the city streets. Illustrated endpapers, including the Flatiron Building, Greenwich Village, and Macy's, map the journey. Rubbino uses the whole page to tell his story, letting subdued colors provide effective backdrops to the tall buildings and high bridges; then, when the two reach the Empire State Building, the page unfolds upward, showing the landmark structure in its full glory. Meanwhile, the artist doesn't stint on views of New Yorkers; sketches of people—all sizes, shapes, colors, and from all walks of life—provide great opportunities for people-watching on the page. At day's end, a cab ride back to Grand Central makes a fitting ending to the pair's highly satisfying day. This is an intriguing snapshot of the Big Apple, sure to delight New York City residents, tourists, and would-be visitors.—Barbara Elleman, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA
