Outstanding This picture book has a Parisian dog just back from his travels to New York and he regales his two canine friends with the wonders he saw there He starts with everyday things such as people on treadmills at gyms, bridges, subways and dog walkers then he tells of the landmarks he saw such as the Statue of Liberty, Guggenheim Museum, Grand Central Park and the Flatiron Building The illustration is beautiful, as soon as I opened the book I grinned with delight Kebbi draws with a free hand sketch that is wild and exuberant using pencil and then brilliantly filling in or just going over parts with what appears to be charcoal and coloured pencils There is a lot of white space and, of course, main colours used are blue and red giving a true American spirit to the book This style should appeal to children and I love exposing them to pieces like this as it shows them art does not have to be neat, realistic nor perfect Every other
