Gr 1-3-This time around, Larry, the dog that loves to travel, gets separated from Pete and his parents in Quincy Market. On the Freedom Trail in search of his boy, the pup passes familiar historic sites before he hops a train, goes to Fenway Park and Hatch Memorial Shell, and finally arrives at the Museum of Science. There, a college student helps reunite the pup with his family. The rhyming text is awkward at times: "A bridge that seemed made of gigantic guitar strings/Was just one of the city's more spectacular things." Readers are given background information about each landmark. Skewes's digitally created, bold illustrations are busy, and the colors and sizes of the font are sometimes difficult to read. Still, this could be a fun book to peruse before or after a visit to Boston.-Diane Antezzo, Ridgefield Library, CTα(c) Copyright 2011.

"Fans of the popular children's series 'Larry Gets Lost' will enjoy this local adventure starring one well-traveled pup and his pal Pete. Through colorful illustrations and simple verse, Larry and Pete visit all of Beantown's tourist destinations, from the Science Museum to the Boston Common and learn a bit about the city's history in the process."WHERE Boston
"Fun illustrations accompany some great facts about all the sites around Boston."Wicked Local Norwood
"Recognizable landmarks are scattered throughout the book, as well as historic and interesting facts about them. So as you're following Larry and his family, you're also learning about some of the wonderful things that can be seen around Boston, from spots on the Freedom Trail, to Fenway Park, the swan boats, the MBTA and more. As an adult, you will enjoy reading it on a couple of levels; it's a cute story to read to your child, but the two of you will also learn a few things too. And your little one will enjoy the bright, bold graphics and the little cartoon dog seen in each scene looking around at the city and for his owners... This is a cute book for anyone who loves Boston (or thinks they might like to go visit it) and has a little kid who loves to be read a story book." MassMoms
