The Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Union Square, Chinatown - these are just a few of the San Francisco landmarks featured in this magical journey around the fabled city by the bay. Each famous location is brought vividly to life is Elisa Kleven's fanciful collage illustrations. The Golden Gate Bridge glitters beneath a capy of fireworks. The Japanese Tea Garden is a-flutter with blossoming cherry trees. Union Square glows with festive winter holiday decorations. Each picture is a miniature gem that sparkles with the color and action that is so much a part of the city - people rushing, strolling, reading, eating, working, and playing. Readers of every age will turn to the busy scenes again and again, each time discovering new surprises. (There's a dog, a cat, and a baby in every scene. Can you find them?)
