Larry Gets Lost in New York City

Larry Gets Lost in New York City
By Michael Mullin
Illustrated by John Skewes
Sasquatch Books : Distributed by PGW/Perseus, 2010. Unpaged. Picture book.

This is another fun addition to Michael Mullin and John Skewes' Larry Gets Lost series. (My absolute favorite is Larry Gets Lost in San Francisco!) Larry the dog is on vacation in New York City with his boy, Pete. Along with Pete's family, they are set to visit all the best New York has to offer, including Times Square, Coney Island, and Central Park. Somehow, Larry gets separated (again!) from his boy and gets to wander about The Big Apple all on his own. They finally reunite at the Statue of Liberty. The retro-inspired illustrations are as colorful and adventurous as the text, and there are new sights to see on every page. Children will enjoy the silly wanderings of Larry, and parents will appreciate the interesting city facts.
