Praise

Praise for Cyclops of Central Park:

“In both premise and detail, Rosenberg employs a sly sense of the absurd. . . [and] Tentler-Krylov’s wildly creative illustrations are fantastical renderings of New York City as it exists in a kind of alternate reality. . . Young readers will see Cyclops’ loving nature and cheer his new bravery. Delightful, witty, and not just for New Yorkers.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Rosenberg’s heartfelt narrative captures the very real anxiety that crowded spaces, especially congested cities, can cause. Tentler-Krylov’s fanciful mixed-media art adds even more humor and gravitas to the text, with the protagonist’s expressive faces sure to elicit giggles. . . Perfect for New York City–themed read-alouds and interactive lap-sits. A great addition to libraries serving young readers.” —Booklist

“Nods to many New York City sights and institutions—The Guggenheim, Time Square, Yankee Stadium, the Statue of Liberty—are woven into the text and background art, which makes the fun journey worthwhile . . . [while] the illustrations capture the magic of the city and show the beauty of life and adventures with friends. VERDICT This lighthearted and clever tale will be a hit for storytime and one-on-one sharing.” —School Library Journal
