About this product
- DescriptionDiscover the vibrant world of Harlem, New York, as seen through the eyes of one little boy who lives there. 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 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 afteron 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. Uptown is the winner of the 2001 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award.
