Product Overview

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.
