The Central Park Tales is a delightful children's book about the adventures of the animals that live in Central Park
Containing 10 short stories with 60 color illustrations
Marcus Meesters captures this magic in his newest children’s book, The Central Park Tales. Reminiscent of the classic books of another era and with beautiful illustrations depicting real places throughout the park, Meesters expertly narrates the adventurous tales of the animals who live in Central Park. Containing ten short stories, young readers (and adults, alike!) are introduced to Squirrel, Duck, Frog, Mousekin, and lovable dog brothers, Doctor Beggar and Mister Pup, among others, and follow along as they navigate their marvelous world – a lush, green oasis in the midst of one of the most bustling, famous cities in the world.
Cassandra's Review- I do wish that I had the whole collection of these books because they are so adorable. My family thoroughly enjoyed reading this. The kids felt like they were a part of the park and adventures. The author really kept them entertained and the illustrations are excellent.
Marcus Meesters is the author and illustrator of The Central Park Tales. He was born in the Netherlands and, at the age of 25, he moved to Amsterdam, where he got to know Vondelpark, Amsterdam’s most famous city park. Meesters is a lover of classic children's books, and it was during one of his walks in Vondelpark that he got the idea to write his own children's book about the animals that live there. His first book, The Vondelpark Tales, was born and extremely well received.
Meesters recently released the second book in the trilogy, The Central Park Tales, which beautifully depicts the famous Central Park in New York City. The third book in the trilogy, The Hyde Park Tales, is expected to release in 2016.
