Uptown is a caterpillar. Well, it's really the Metro-North train as it eases over the Harlem River. (from the first line)
Coretta Scott King Award-winning illustrator Bryan Collier discovers the vibrant world of Harlem, New York, as seen through the eyes of a little boy
""Uptown . . .
"Harlem, New York.
"Chicken and waffles.
"Jazz.
"Home."
"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.
From the Publisher:
Vibrant illustrations enhance this bright introduction to the people and places of Harlem as seen and experienced by a young boy from the community. A Coretta Scott King Award Winner.
Annotation:
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.
