Illustrated by Steve Noon Revised and updated for a new generation In the bestselling A City Through Time readers are invited to follow the progress of an imaginary city through six key periods of time each captured by a scene of the city and zooming in on key buildings like a Roman bathhouse medieval castle and a modern skyscraper Illustrations by award winning artist Steve Noon provide a uniue history of city life transporting readers from an early Greek settlement to an industrial metropolis while pull outs surrounding the illustrations introduce the reader to the people who lived there from Greek slaves to modern day commuters New to this edition is a photographic section exploring amazing real life cities from ancient Babylon to Constantinople to 21st century Tokyo Supports the Common Core State Standards What started as a good idea unfortunately has not been executed well at all My main problem is that with uality of print I suppose the original artist renderings have had sufficient sharpness and clarity in details but alas many tiny details are lost in the standard dpi that this book is printed in So while looking at the tiny pictures I as an adult can sometime guess just from sheer knowledge of history what the people in the pictures are doing or what objects they're holding That however fails the original purpose of the book as being that for children that do not have much of prior knowledgeThere is also an annoying factor of the seeming the same location of the city but there is no way that greeks romans and then frenchBritish could be at the same spot I don't want to argue necessarily since I am not a historian or anthropologist by trade just general sense based on whatever history knowledge I do haveThe text and the selection of characters in focus that are pictured separately above or below the main picture are strange at the very least and so are the comments to some of the activities ie there is no coherence or system in those commentsBottom line the uality of print given the scale and details of pictures is the main issue with this book Text could be ignored after all Very disappointed and returning this book
