About this title


Lost, Hilary seeks refuge by one of the lion statues on the steps of New York Public Library and is delighted when the statues come to life and take her on a tour of the city before returning her to her parents

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- In this picture book fantasy, Hilary visits New York City for the first time with her parents. She becomes separated from them, and settles down at the feet of one of the stone lions in front of the New York Public Library, waiting to be found. Hilary dozes and then awakens to find that the lions have come to life. She is given a magical ride through the deserted nighttime streets of Manhattan as the lions return her to her parents. Brief text on the left-hand pages faces full-page illustrations on the right. The representational illustrations, done in muted colors and occasionally of striking design, convey a magic that the text does not. The language is stiff and awkward. More damaging is the lack of clarity or urgency in the story line. Hilary exhibits insufficient anxiety about being lost to sustain readers' concern about her. On the other hand, the text is too plodding for the book to work simply as an evocation of the magic of a sleeping city. --Cynthia Bishop, Onondaga County Public Library, Syracuse, NY
