Product Details


“This gem of a Manhattan tale from the early 1960s should be better known, especially given Aison’s astounding charcoal and watercolor art, so simple and bold in black, smudgy gray and a perfect dark green.” —The New York Times Book Review

“New York Review Books is one of the few publishing houses out there specializing in reprinting books for children published long ago. …we’re seeing gorgeous reproductions of books like……the remarkable New York City-inspired Arthur.” —Elizabeth Bird, Fuse 8, School Library Journal

“If I could have only one of these books for myself this is one I would pick…One of the best children’s books ever – that’s why it is called a ‘classic’, which means it’s special.” —Eileen Battersby, “My favourite children’s books of 2015”, Irish Times

Praise for Rhoda Levine’s Three Ladies Beside the Sea

“Ms. Levine’s wry imagination and Mr. Gorey’s powerfully epicene drawings (figure that one out) constitute a whole new country for a child to visit or for a lucky grandfather to act as tour guide. …This is, of course, a must for the many Edward Gorey fans of all ages, and a chance to discover the fine poetry of Rhoda Levine. I read this one to my five year old grand-daughter because it is just long enough to be engaging and just short enough to be wiggle proof, and just wise enough to set a young imagination free as a bird.” –Sherman Yellen, The Huffington Post 

Praise for Rhoda Levine’s He Was There From the Day We Moved In: 

“Gentle color washes over Edward Gorey’s illustrations of spindly boys and shaggy dog and skies. They set just the right note for this story that achieves a sensitive equilibrium of pathos and humor, a total effect that is sentimental without apology and optimistic without reason.” —The New York Times
