About the Author:

BARBARA MCCLINTOCK has written and/or illustrated many acclaimed books for young readers, among them Adèle & Simon, an ALA Notable Book, a Children's Book Sense Pick, and a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year. She lives in Windham, Connecticut.

Review:

“The young Parisian siblings from McClintock's well-loved ADÈLE & SIMON embark on a second highly successful adventure . . . . Sepia-colored endpapers trace their cross-country route on an old railway map, creating an early-20th century setting, and the artist's characteristic ink-and-watercolor work depicts each of 12 destinations in impeccable period detail.” ―Starred, Publishers Weekly

“The book's old-fashioned appeal comes in large part from McClintock's gentle pen-and-watercolor art. The deceptively simple scenes open up the more the reader studies them; her illustrations are meticulously researched and supplemented with endnotes explaining the choices in each picture.” ―Newsday

“McClintock's travelogue unfolds with . . . uncommon affability. . . . Kids will have fun poring over lovely tableaus to look for what Simon has lost. . . . Kids can also look for famous people, some familiar and some not. (Mark Twain is boarding a Mississippi steamboat, and Teddy Roosevelt's first family is strolling near the Capitol.). . . . Adèle and Simon in America is full of adventure and affection. But it is not only about people. It is also about place. As the title suggests, there are three stars--a sister, a brother and a nation.” ―The San Francisco Chronicle

“As always, McClintock's fabulously detailed Victorian-style pen-and-watercolor drawings repay close study.” ―Bloomberg.com

“This is a feast for the eyes and a wonderful way to incorporate geographic information into a child's frame of knowledge.” ―School Library Journal

“The broad, very finely drawn American scenes reward close study; not only are the small tourists and their lost items there to be picked out, but each spread is stocked with bustling figures and business, along with accurately rendered architectural and historical detail. . . . The elegant period visuals supply plenty of eye candy.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“The absorbing artwork will sustain many viewings, perhaps even enough for eagle-eyed readers to spot Simon's (tiny) lost objects in the spreads.” ―Booklist

“Once again, the carefully researched illustrations are invitingly detailed and touched with humor, while a historical endpaper map recapitulates the journey.” ―Horn Book

“A gem . . . highly recommended, along with the original.” ―Bookloons

“Barbara McClintock's intricate pen-and-ink watercolor drawings are ideally suited to the early 20th-century setting of a train journey two visiting siblings from France make across America.” ―Worcester Telegram & Gazette

“Lively end notes include historical pointers for each illustration.” ―South Florida Sun-Sentinel
