Wow! City!, by Robert Neubecker (2004)
Picture Book, 36 pages
“Wow!” is right! This picture book is packed with amazing and colorful illustrations portraying a trip to the big city through the eyes of Izzy, a red-haired lively little girl from the mountains. The almost full-page illustrations in the book capture the bustling world of New York City and what it’s like for anyone to go there for the first time. Neubecker truly outdid himself with the illustrations in this book, hiding Izzy and her father in every page spread. Whether it be finding Izzy’s father’s glasses in the rearview mirror of a taxi or Izzy running to pet a dog in a crowded Central Park, young and older readers alike will have fun absorbing all the colors and images trying to find the pair. Unlike other books which draw a reader to a singular image on each page, Wow!City! truly captures the busy life of the city that never sleeps, allowing readers to glimpse an array of people and goings-on. With minimal text, this book would be a great read for a small group with an eye for detail and adventure. Keep an eye out for the reappearing golden retriever!
