Walking around New York City, it’s all too easy to look up at the posh, mysterious apartment buildings with their sconces and rooftop gardens and wonder who lives there and what they’re like. Welcome to 777 Garden Avenue, one such apartment building and its lively residents. In this interconnected collection of 10 short stories, you’ll meet a doorman who excels at all his tasks except for talking baseball, a long-forgotten room, a cupid-like elevator, and the unlikely romance of a cerebral psychologist and a jazz musician – both of whom are mice! With animals who talk, machinery with feelings, and eclectic adults, this collection – highlighted by 16 full-page black-and-white illustrations by the author – is sure to enchant. Ages 8-12. 184pp. Signed by two-time Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka.
