Join Gray Malin’s menagerie of wild animals for a stay at the Parker Hotel—now available as a board book!
This story of a whimsical weekend away is filled with everything you’d expect from a sunny California vacation. There are tennis courts and a lemonade stand and a pool. But the other guests and staff you’ll meet here are more than a little unexpected. . . . From superstar photographer Gray Malin, author of Abrams’ bestselling Beaches, comes Be Our Guest!, Malin’s first board book compiled from his series Gray Malin at the Parker. These photos have been a hit with parents decorating their children’s rooms, and now they tell a story of adventure and imagination, with an extra helping of whimsy.
"Malin's superb and ingenious photographs should amuse a broad range of readers."— Kirkus Reviews
"In his first book for children, Malin, who specializes in lush travel photography, has created a junior version of a coffee table book. The images, all shot on location at the actual Parker Hotel in Palm Springs, are saturated with color, the pool shimmers under the desert sky, and the lighting gives all the animals an old-school Hollywood glamour."— Publishers Weekly
"A fantastical and fun hotel that will capture the attention and interest of young children. This extraordinary vacation destination will spark many return visits."— School Library Journal
