Review: The Secret Subway

The Secret Subway The Secret Subway by Shana Corey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The story of Alfred Ely Beach's secret subway is a piece of NYC history.

While this story is fascinating, it is quite wordy and did not hold my interest as I wished it would. The mixed media illustrations are incredible. My favorite spread is the second with a blue backgrounds and Victorian character silhouettes. I think that the clay figures are sculpted beautifully, that picturebook is the wrong media for this story. I feel as though it would work better as a stop motion short film.
