Where imagination reigns…
“The Promise” takes place at Playland Amusement Park, a unique Art Deco park that opened in 1928 and is located in Rye, New York. This is the story of a father and son’s trip to the park, filled with the alluring magic of Playland and the Grand Carousel. Brilliant, full-page illustrations bring the story to life in memory of the former caretaker of the carousel. Step back in time and enjoy the story of a place that has thrilled children for generations!
“The grandeur and enjoyment of Playland’s historic Grand Carousel has delighted children for over a century. This story brings that enjoyment to life for children and the child inside us all.”
