When Marvin the Ape makes a break from the zoo, he heads straight downtown to the heart of the action, where he discovers everything the big city has to offer. Dining at the finest restaurants, strolling through museums, commuting with the crowds and rooting for the local baseball team, Marvin fits right in with the natives. And he may never leave! The Buehnerss vocabulary choices and turns of phrase imbue this romp with an appealing sense of wonder....Mark Buehners paintings brim with kinetic energy.— Publishers Weekly, starred review
