9781933212920: On the Loose in Boston (Find the Animals)

With simple rhymes and colorful, highly detailed painting, the prize-winning Atlantic Online cartoonist creates a "Where's Waldo?"-type hit, setting animals free from Franklin Park Zoo and challenging children to find them in settings from Faneuil Hall to Fenway Park. In the city of Boston, / in fair Franklin Park, / sits a snug little zoo / that closes at dark. One morning the keeper / discovered a note. / "We've gone for a walk""/ the animals wrote. ‚"Oh, dear,"said the keeper, /"what am I to do? / My critters have left me / alone at the zoo". Children will have a ball helping the keeper find a rhinoceros in the North End, a koala bear in Chinatown, and a penguin on Boston Common. Over 100 animals are hiding cleverly in beloved Beantown settings.

Review:

It can be hard to find new books that capture the essence of Boston as well as Make Way for Ducklings does, but Sage Stossel's new book On the Loose in Boston is one book for Bostonians to take a good, close look at.

And to clarify, I mean a very good, very close look since in this book the game is to locate many creatively hidden animals on every page. You see, the Franklin Park Zoo animals are wandering through Boston causing all kinds of mischief. Stossel entices the reader using pen and watercolor illustrations to create a visual essence that is Boston in all its glory. Not only are the illustrations awesome, Stossel engages the reader with challenging searches for the Franklin Park Zoo animals artistically hidden among her drawings, and she entertains us with a rhyming plot that tickles the tongue with wonderful vocabulary.

My eight-year-old Trey and I sat down to read this book at bedtime the other night only to find that we became captured by the search challenges and could not put the book away until every last zoo animal was found. This book is a fantastic gift for Bostonians and visitors alike as it features all the hot Boston spots that you know and love. The details Stossel uses in her illustrations are amazing and my son said that he loved the "great views." Trey's excitement as he said, "We've been there!" at every page turn was priceless. This book could easily provide hours of entertainment at home or in the car and even includes a website where children can make their own Boston comic book.

As a teacher and mother I have bought many books and continue to search for books that can entertain beyond one reading. Sage Stossel's book On the Loose in Boston could easily do that! --BostonMamas.com, June 24, 2009

The astute Commonwealth Editions books in Beverly has a line of children's books and launched several delightful titles for young readers last year. The ever-wry Sage Stossel (whose cartoons often brighten our day in the Globe) checks in with a find-the-animals book called On the Loose in Boston, in which Franklin Park Zoo animals pop up in the darndest places. --The Boston Globe, February 1, 2010
