Release Date:  August 10th, 2020

About the book...
Fitz the Fox can’t wait to see all that New York City has to offer — but will he get to see the penguin feeding or will a subway snafu derail his plans? A whimsical, sight-seeing jaunt that encourages wonder with rhyming text, peppered with facts and trivia along the way!

Join Fitz as he visits the Statue of Liberty with her 8-foot long index finger, the bustling crowds of Grand Central Terminal, the wondrous, book-filled spaces of the New York Public Library, and marvels at the sky-scraping height of the Empire State Building.

Continue to wander with a walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn across the Brooklyn Bridge and visit the Bronx Zoo along with more iconic landmarks while exploring this exciting city!


About the author and illustrator...

Reese Traves writes books for kids. She loves thinking up stories and fun characters and then writing things for those characters to say in the stories. Wander New York: Fitz in the City is her debut picture book.

She is also the co-founder of Hello Small World, a greeting card & illustration studio creating cheer-inducing greeting cards, art prints, calendars & more since 2011.

Reese loves bright colors, coffee (she’s done growing so it’s okay — she also does not know if this is a fact or myth), coding, and of course wandering in new places. She lives in Texas with Fitz and Fitz’s illustrator, Jon, who happens to be her husband.

Visit her website at and follow Reese on Twitter @reesetraves.
