Move the piece of acetate slowly across the page and watch the images come to life as if by magic in this animated picture book like none you've never seen before Join our pajama-clad hero as he leaves his bedroom to see the sights of New York at night time. Dodge the traffic, be dazzled by the lights on Broadway, and take in the heights of the Big Apple’s dizzying skyline. The book is produced using the very old technique of Ombro-Cinema: the lines imbedded in the design create an illusion of movement when contrasted against the lines of the acetate.
