This is a unique picture book about life in the big city. The girl in red is followed throughout her day as she hustles and bustles through the city. She passes a lot of interesting buildings and people. She also passes poor homes and people. But she seems to be the bright spot in each situation.
It is an eerie book that will transport the reader to different views of the city. The pages are dark, highlighting the important pats of each illustration. I think it will broaden any child’s imagination and view of city life.
This picture book is also uniquely illustrated for the older child in mind.
