A City Through Time
Illustrated by Steve Noon
Revised and updated for a new generation!
In the bestselling A City Through Time, readers are invited to follow the progress of an imaginary city through six key periods of time, each captured by a scene of the city and zooming in on key buildings like a Roman bathhouse, medieval castle, and a modern skyscraper. Illustrations by award-winning artist Steve Noon provide a unique history of city life, transporting readers from an early Greek settlement to an industrial metropolis, while pull-outs surrounding the illustrations introduce the reader to the people who lived there, from Greek slaves to modern-day commuters.
New to this edition is a photographic section exploring amazing real-life cities — from ancient Babylon to Constantinople to 21st-century Tokyo.

Review: A City Through TimeUser Review - Annie Pasma - Goodreads
This was a very good book about the evolution of cities. It starts at the beginning and shows where later cities were built on the previous ones. The illustrations are very good. Recommend ages 8 to 12. Read full review
Review: A City Through TimeUser Review - Ilana Waters - Goodreads
Gorgeous, fascinating book. Incredible level of detail. If you look closely (and you will), you'll see a bit of humor on every page as well. A street cart vendor chasing down a thief, for example. Can't wait to read the rest of the series! Read full review
