Uptown . . .
Harlem, New York.
Chicken and waffles.
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 afternoon and as personal as a trip to the barbershop where old-timers reminisce.
Bryan Collier 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. (32 pages) Ages 4-8
