$ 11.95 Sale • Save
Children's Book Press asked fifteen gifted fine artists to portray, in words and pictures, the places and spaces most special to them. Is there a corner of your block that you love to explore? A room in your house that holds a special memory? A piece of your home country that you particularly miss? A faraway place you've only heard about from an elder family member that excites your imagination? On My Block is the remarkable result. The places these visual artists have chosen to represent are moving, funny, and unexpected. Readers will soar from the rooftops of South Brooklyn to the adobe-colored desert of Taos Pueblo, from a basement in San Francisco's Japantown to a Mississippi Gulf Coast porch.
