The Inside-Outside Book of Texas

Roxie Munro, Author Seastar Books $16.95 (48p) ISBN 978-1-58717-050-8
As in her previous books in the series, Roxie Munro takes a close look at the Lone Star State in The Inside-Outside Book of Texas. Featuring electric hues, Munro's realistic watercolor-and-ink artwork depicts images ranging from the dramatic (she pairs a panorama of the Dallas skyline with a picture of the sprawling Palo Duro Canyon) to the mundane (a full-page spread reveals ranch hands eating in a cookshack). Among the sites and topics covered are Texas Stadium (home of the Dallas Cowboys), Houston's Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center and native wildlife species. Two books in the series by Munro are also being re-released: The Inside-Outside Book of Washington, D.C. and The Inside-Outside Book of New York City. ( Mar.)
