Talk about a coffee table book. I received this book a few months ago . Unfortunately it actually was in my living room on the COFFEE TABLE. It got buried a few times in the clutter and forgotten about.It really is a super fun book. It would be especially fun for someone from Chicago. With a truly original idea author Larry Broutman has come up with a truly original book. A large hard cover tour of Chicago. Filled with the most stunningly beautiful pictures of the landmarks of the great city of Chicago. Each classic photo is accompanied with a wild animal that has no place in the city.From Penguins taking a leisurely stroll along Navy Pier to Lions wading in the waters of Lake Michigan.
Taking the time to search each page of this book is part of the fun.I’m not really familiar with the city of Chicago and I love it. For someone from Chicago I’m sure it would bmuch appreciated.The best part of the book is that the proceeds go to charity.
This book belongs in your house!
