Format: Hardcover
One star is for the artwork, one is because it's a sweet story, one is for the negative space, and one is for the dog. The book is cute, and the rhymes engage the reader. The retro style art offers aesthetic appeal. However, the information is thin and in some cases wrong. For example, the Texas flag on the back cover is upside down. The white field is supposed to be on the top. Holy smokes!
That being said, the book introduces some of the more commonly known tourist attractions in Texas. For K-3 readers it could be fun; not sure whether I would use it in a 4th grade Texas History course. Perhaps, just for fun, despite the cliches. (Except for the sacrilegious back cover, which would have to be fixed de pronto.)
Larry Gets Lost in Texas is obviously just another in a series of Larry Getting Lost books. The uniqueness of Texas and my chauvinism about the state makes it hard for me to accept anything Texan being merely one of a series published by outsiders in Seattle. Y'all need to put down your coffee and fix that flag. Yep, that about does it.

My husband is from Texas and his family still lives there. We ordered the book and the text is just enough for our 2 year old and she loves the pictures.
Great book, we will buy the Washington DC version when it comes out.

A really great book for kids who might be moving to this state- very fun to read and makes you want to learn more about all the places the boy and his dog go to and see! Upper elementary kids would get teh most from this book, but my preschoolers love the colorful pictures too!
