KIRKUS REVIEW

 ``...watch the morningrise melt/across rooftops/and splash against windows./There's a man on the street corner/who plays golden saxophone./Listen to the music,/dance in the sun...'' For the usual colors and more (black, white, copper, gray), Spinelli's imaginative text, sampling all the senses (the smell of green onions, the taste of cilantro), occasions Schuett's attractive full-bleed paintings, featuring the city scenes described in lush symphonies of color, each with a thematic hue. Not a first color book, but excellent for those ready to consider the range suggested by a word like silver, which is depicted--not literally but to be imagined, on the last spread--in the stars, in a ``shimmery dress,'' or in ``silver tinkling party sounds.'' Nice. (Picture book. 5-8)
