KIRKUS REVIEW

Thumping verses convey the rush and bustle of a crowded subway trip. A tiny girl and her mother ride uptown on the subway, listen to a busker’s saxophone playing, and transfer trains to complete their ride. The multicultural and smiling crowd is loudly colorful in bright, textured patterned outfits that accentuate the teeming multitudes. The passengers show constant delight, from their gleeful dances to the music, to their tight squeeze into a car: “open the door / to let in more / more, more, more <\b>/ on the subway.” Movement and energy fill the bright and crowded pages since this is the subway as seen through the eyes of one thrilled at the adventure: busy, joyful, and exciting. (Picture book. 2-5)
