“Readers will be riveted by the portrait of the beloved children’s author that emerges in these pages. Not exactly what they may have expected.”
“Valerio’s voice is unique, and reflects the cityscape he describes in this ‘walk’ with Silverstein…a charming promenade. I couldn’t help but think, in reading this, that there was a flavor to NYC that seems duller now….but is totally present in Valerio’s writing. The writing transports and provides welcome oasis these days!”
