Fans of M. Sasek rejoice. In this hefty volume we have abridgements of all 16 of his "This is" series. Sasek's whimsical yet masterful illustrations take you on a whirlwind tour of New York, Edinburgh, Paris, Ireland, London, Britain, Venice, Rome and more. Of course I left my heart for his rendition of San Francisco.
