"Hancock's illustrations are really pleasing to the eye, deftly
capturing various iconic buildings around the city, and often

"For those who love to walk or bike, this book is a
carry-along delight. Turn off Google Maps. Get lost in the book.

quirky, humorous, and artful travelogue is a journey through an
illustrator's wonderfully whacky mind."

Impossible not to smile while reading." --Inside Hook
