Bibliophile's Corner

New York
Day & Night
by Aurelie Pollet & Vincent Bergier

Goodreads Description: 
Some of New York's most familiar sights look very different at night in this highly amusing introduction to the city. Sometimes your eyes can play tricks on you, especially in the dark. This enchanting picture book shows how New York City can look quite peculiar at night. Each brightly colored spread is overlaid with a sheet of translucent blue paper and when lifted, voila! A space ship and Martian become the Guggenheim, a giant serpent is actually the subway, King Kong's jungle turns into Central Park, and a superhero takes on the shape of a construction worker. Exhilarating and captivating, all the scenes are easily switched between day and night and will take the reader on a unique journey that lets imaginations run wild while revealing that some things at night aren't as scary as they seem.

My Thoughts:
This imaginative picture book is super fun and informative! While young children will be entertained with the book's ingenious format, they will also be learning about one of our country's most important big cities - and that it's not as formidable as it might seem! New York - Day & Night will also inspire curiosity as to how the book was created; a great introduction to a special form of art. I highly recommend this book to readers aged three to seven.
