Synopsis: For my birthday, Grandma sent me a crystal globe of the city where she lives. “If you look carefully, maybe you can see me,” she wrote. Late that night, I woke to find a full moon glowing in a starry sky. “To Grandma’s,” I shouted.

So begins a boy’s search for his grandmother as he is transported on a magical journey through nighttime New York City. The globe/moon pulls him along to sweeping vistas. From the spiraling towers of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, to the grand lions on the steps of the public library, to the heights of the Chrysler Building and other wondrous sights, our hero encounters the city’s jeweled architecture and many delightful denizens–arriving just in time for a huge celebration atop a famous green lady.

Review: A young birthday boy, falling asleep in sight of his new crystal globe from Grandma, takes a magical night flight over New York City. Casting his fishing rod at the globe-become-moon, the boy sails out into the sky, into a surreal world where stone lions yawn on the steps on New York's public library, flying cowboys lasso faded stars from the sky, and enchanted ladies float and dance over a wide avenue. All the friendly, dream-like people offer encouraging words--"You're just in time," "You're almost there"--but the moon lifts him away before he ever gets an answer to his many questions. The hints get broader as the evening wears on, and the party that awaits him on the Statue of Liberty is not so much a surprise as a joyful reunion with all his new friends... and his beloved grandmother.

Like David Wiesner's wordless Sector 7, Tuesday, and Free Fall, illustrator Brian Wilcox's surreal, fanciful landscapes are implied from dizzying perspectives, allowing the mesmerized reader to become lost in the gray tones of his pencil drawings. Coauthors Wilcox and Lawrence David create a dreamy picture book sure to inspire imaginative flights of fancy in readers of all ages. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
