As the mother of two young boys, I have read tons of bedtime stories. And let's face it, Dora leaves a little to be desired. This book is my favorite by the talented illustrator and writer Maira Kalman. She is a fascinating woman with a gift for capturing the essence of people which is what she does in her fabulous children's book Next Stop Grand Central. And you don't have to be a kid or have one to get a kick out of it.
