Tulip Sees America

Tulip Sees America

by Cynthia Rylant Illustrated by Lisa Desimini

From Ohio in the Midwest to the coast of Oregon, a man and his dog, Tulip, travel through America and experience some of its small wonders — farms in Iowa, the Nebraska skies, and desert in Nevada — before finally settling down.

With bright, vibrant paintings that capture the wonder of the American landscape, Tulip Sees America is a joyful tribute to America's beauty and bounty.
