Uptown is a caterpillar. Well, it's really the Metro-North train as it eases over the Harlem River. (from the first line)
In this story of a boy growing up in Harlem, Collier's spare, poetic text and intricate color illustrations evoke every aspect of the community, from the legendary Apollo Theater to the chocolate-colored brownstones to the music of Duke Ellington.

From the Publisher
Uptown is a rich mix of flavors, colors, sounds, and cultures that come together to create a vibrant community like no other in the world. Seen through the eyes of one little boy who lives there, the details of life in Harlem are as joyous as a game of basketball on a summer's afternoon and as personal as a trip to the barbershop where old-timers reminisce.

Bryan Collier's spare, poetic text and beautiful, intricate illustrations evoke every aspect of Harlem, from the legendary Apollo Theater to chocolate-colored brownstones, weekend shopping on 125th Street, and the music of Duke Ellington.

A young boy takes readers on a poetic journey through the sights, sounds, and society of his Harlem neighborhood. On this journey readers will encounter the Apollo Theater, a local barbershop, the Metro-North train, and the music of the Harlem Boys' Choir. Watercolor and collage illustrations. Winner of the 2001 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award.

"...a visual love song that makes it easy to see why the narrator loves it uptown." - Janice M. Del Negro November 2000
