Good Morning, City

Written by Pat Kiernan & illustrated by Pascal Campion | Farrar, Strauss and Giroux | November 15, 2016

It's dark and quiet.
The moon still glimmers in the sky.

While the baker, the ferry boat captain, and the TV anchorman are busy at work, most people are cozily snuggled in bed. Then dawn's first light peeks through the tree branches. Wake up, city! There is much to be done in neighborhoods all across the metropolis. As the morning gets brighter, the city streets bustle with people ready to start the day.

  • Pat Kiernan has been waking up before dawn since 1997. He's become a fixture on New York City televisions as the morning news anchor for NY1. He's hosted nationally televised game shows and has appeared as himself in dozens of movies and TV shows. He lives with his wife and daughters in Brooklyn, New York.

    Pascal Campion is a freelance illustrator whose clients include DreamWorks Animation, Disney Toons, Cartoon Network, They Might Be Giants, PBS, and Tor.com. He lives in Los Angeles, California.
