Book Description

May 30 2003 This is . . .
Facsimile edition of a beloved, long out-of-print children's classic.

The charm and uniqueness of New York City was never more beautifully and whimsically created for children than in Miroslav Sasek's This Is New York. First published in 1960, his vision of New York nearly forty years ago still remains fresh: the hustle and bustle of Times Square, the ethnic neighborhoods, the awe-inspiring architecture. Sasek captured the essences of New York that delight children and parents, many of whom who will remember the book from their childhood.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Children's Books Ever! June 26 2003
By A Customer
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic children's book May 14 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars REPRINT SASEK, PLEASE! Nov. 26 1999
By elan fleisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Sasek's classic works belong in bookstores right next to Tintin and Madeline and Babar. They are as informative as entertaining for children, and adults. I notice that Amazon lists quite a few Sasek titles: missing is This Is Venice and This is Texas. Anyone notice any other missing titles?
