In Find and Seek New York a small boy arrives in the city of New York with his family, willing to explore his new surroundings with an open heart and a spirit of wonder.

"The illustrations ooze style and have an architectural feel about them. They appear so vividly that at times it feels like your walking along side the boy, touring the city." --Mamma Filz If you are heading to New York for a bit of sightseeing with children, say under 12, this would be a delightful addition to the family suitcase. ... Beautiful architectural renditions of some of the famous - and not so famous landmarks - adorn the pages of this hardback. Sally Roydhouse gets the balance of popular tourist areas to visit with places that you may not have thought about going to or even known about. Of course this is a family friendly guide but there is something for everyone amongst her selections. ... It's so refreshing to read about a destination through a child's eyes but also a great opportunity to share a new place with your mini readers. I've also found Sally Roydhouse books to be a great tool to introduce to a child prior to travelling to that particular destination.
About Sally Roydhouse
Sally Roydhouse is an Australian creative who was born in a small country town in Tasmania. In a community where the simple things in life counted, the creative spirit was very much alive and kicking. Much of her childhood was spent riding horses, picking fruit, and swimming in rivers, and a love for those days has never left her. Sally completed a Bachelor of Graphic Design with Honors at Swinburne University, Melbourne, in 2001. Since then she has been working within design and publishing, with a particular specialty in book design. Sally had the opportunity to move to Singapore with her husband in early 2007 and has since enjoyed the adventure of living in southeast Asia. When not working on creative projects, she enjoys looking for the next adventure with her three sons Rupert, David, and Jack - and riding a horse when she gets a chance.
