KIRKUS REVIEW

Although Lewin has already introduced readers to markets in an earlier effort, he retains the ability to fascinate viewers of all ages with his complex images, authentic representations of people and places from around the globe, and his practiced traveler’s eye, which allows him to select a moment in time and capture it with his brush. The busy centers of commerce in his luminous paintings include a floating market in Thailand, a flea market in New Jersey, an Egyptian camel market and a train-side market on the way to Machu Picchu, the site of an ancient Incan city in Peru, where backpackers and tourists stop for souvenirs and supplies. A few sentences poetically describe the markets, the products on sale and the people peddling their wares. Young armchair travelers will taste the foods, hear the crowds and long to buy a treasure from the boy at the flea market selling his action figures. (Picture book/nonfiction. 6-9)
