Lost in NYC: A Subway Adventure/Perdidos en NYC: una aventura en el metro

Nadja Spiegelman. illus. by Sergio Garcia Sanchez. TOON Graphic.

Gr 3-5–Pablo’s first day at his new school coincides with a field trip to the Empire State Building, and a series of mishaps ensue when he and his partner get separated from the rest of the class. Fun and engaging cartoon art, cutaways with above- and below-ground views, photographs, informative asides about the NYC subway system, and a map all contribute to the story of a boy learning to navigate his surroundings and find his way home.
