Set in the heart of New York City, The Central Park Lost Mitten Party is based on the imaginative premise that whatever you lose in the rush of the day enjoys a magnificent nighttime celebration deep inside Central Park before magically returning home. Beautifully illustrated and researched, the Lost Mitten Party’s shoes, lunchboxes, mittens, and gloves are decorated with the architectural motifs of Central Park’s bridges, balustrades, and arches, and frolic among some of Central Park’s most beloved locations, while sporting Radio City Rockettes-inspired hats, museum admission buttons, and “New York City” library and subway cards. The Central Park Lost Mitten Party’s endnotes describe the contributions of Central Park’s architects, leaders, and benefactors, and meticulously decode the secrets and history of many of Central Park’s most famous locations, Bethesda Terrace, the Carousel, Sheep Meadow, Bow Bridge, the Naumburg Bandshell, the Alice in Wonderland statue, Greywacke Arch, Belvedere Castle, the Delacorte Clock, and Henry Bacon’s uniquely numbered lamp posts, all shaping the Park we know today. Well-researched, and beautifully written and illustrated, The Central Park Lost Mitten Party delights and educates readers of all ages. A perfect, classic tale, wonderfully executed, for New York grownups, children, parents, educators, and out-of-town visitors to celebrate the magic, beauty and artistic detail of America’s first urban public park.
