Summary
Vibrant illustrations enhance this bright introduction to the people and places of Harlem as seen and experienced by a young boy from the community. 12,500 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Discover the vibrant world of Harlem, New York, as seen through the eyes of one little boy who lives there.

"Uptown . . .
Harlem, New York.
Chicken and waffles.
Jazz.
Home."

Uptown is a rich mix of flavors, colors, sounds, and cultures that come together to create a vibrant community like no other in the world. Seen through the eyes of one little boy who lives there, the details of life in Harlem are as joyous as a game of basketball on a summer's afternoon and as personal as a trip to the barbershop where old-timers reminisce.

Bryan Collier's spare, poetic text and beautiful, intricate illustrations evoke every aspect of Harlem, from the legendary Apollo Theater to chocolate-colored brownstones, weekend shopping on 125th Street, and the music of Duke Ellington.

Uptown is the winner of the 2001 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award.
