Visiting Nana in the city, the unnamed child narrator is initially unreceptive to the appeal. "The city is busy...loud...[and] filled with scary things." Nana promises to show her young visitor that "the city is wonderful--bustling, booming, and extraordinary," and their tour the following day does just that. The simple, meaningful text is well served by richly detailed watercolors conveying a bustling city. (c) Copyright 2015. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
