Steiner transports readers to a fantastic city constructed out of everyday household items in this colorful and engaging picture book. A spirited text guides onlookers through this miniature metropolis, a tour comprised of full-color spreads that are loaded with surprises: skyscrapers made out of sweaters and dog bones, Ritz cracker and pretzel chairs, and a Brooklyn Bridge spanned by nutcrackers. A guide in the back details the number of look-alike items (up to 207 in each photographed scene), making this a fun addition to any shelf, and especially where the I Spy books are in demand. (Picture book. 4-9)
