Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375811192, Hardcover)After an exciting flight (Lisa's Airplane Trip), Lisa, the petite white dog from Paris, is ready for her big adventure in New York. With suave Uncle Harrison to show her around, what could possibly go wrong? The two visit the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, and best of all, Times Square! Alas, this is where Lisa and her uncle part ways--accidentally. Luckily, our earnest heroine is also pretty street smart. After asking a police officer for help, she's trying to get the attention of the woman at the information desk, when she hears an announcement: "Little Lisa, your uncle is waiting for you on the 64th floor." Saved!
If you're as much a fan of Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben's collaborative efforts as we are--or even if you've never met Lisa or Gaspard (Gaspard on Vacation), you'll be utterly charmed by Lisa in New York. Hallensleben's thick, smeary brush strokes are endlessly appealing, whether depicting the "funny-looking Flatiron Building" or a raring-to-go Lisa gazing out the window of her hip uncle's high-rise (he seems to have some Andy Warhol paintings on his wall!) (Ages 3 and older) --Emilie Coulter

When Lisa gets lost while visiting her uncle in New York City, she is saved by her own cleverness and a Statue of Liberty nightlight.
