Format: Hardcover
My elementary school library had seven of M. Sasek's "This Is" books. They were simply magical to me as a child. I used to always have at least one checked out. I believe I set a record for most consecutive weeks of having a single book checked out with "This Is Washington DC". I have since collected 17 of the 18 "This Is" books as an adult. They are still magical. The books portray an optimism that is missing in today's world. Sasek's beautiful artwork is bright and cheery. Anyone who is a fan of Mary Blair and her style of art would love Sasek's artwork. The books are just as enjoyable for adults as well as children. There is a ton of tongue-in-cheek humor that I never got as a child. The books are sure to strike the spirit of adventure for any youngster. I am looking forward to reading these books to my child when he gets old enough.
The amazing thing about "This Is New York" is that it still captures the spirit and vitality of New York today. It would make an excellent addition to any book collection, child or adult.

These books by Miroslav Sasek were possibly my most beloved books as a child. I am thrilled that 2 of the series are being reprinted. His illustrations are charming and timeless. I used to pour over these books wondering what these cities would be like. I'm hoping that This is Paris and This is London will follow.

Poor Job of Printing Oct. 15 2007
By D. Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Great book but a poor job of printing/scanning ("Printed in China"). My copy just arrived and all the images look washed-out, with blurry grays where there should be blacks. The copy I saw at the Tenement Museum bookstore in New York did not look like this. Very disappointing. Same for my copy of "This Is San Francisco" that was also part of this order. Bleh.

charming classic for kids June 19 2006
By Carol Weston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I loved books as a child, but alas, I never owned this one. Yet even without the nostalgia, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it with adult eyes and the illustrations are captivating. I like that New York "is full of the Biggest Things" from "biggest Sunday papers" (it's true!) to "biggest traffic jams." Sasek's book takes kids from Harlem to Chinatown, and the very last page offers up-to-date facts. Great for little children. If your kids (or niece or granddaughter) are older (age 7 to 13), get her Melanie in Manhattan which is also set in New York -- my hometown -- and takes kids from Harlem to Chinatown with stops on the Empire State Building and Brooklyn Bridge. Happy Reading and Happy Traveling! melaniemartin.com

informative and humorous June 22 1999
By madrona@io.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of many travel books by Sasek. They teach children about great cities mostly by the delightful and humorous pictures. The pictures are colorful and cartoonlike, yet accurately and uncannily capture each city's unique qualities. I am interested in collecting the whole series in English.
