Editorial Reviews

Review

“Larry’s determined quest is only part of what makes this book–and the other books in the Larry Gets Lost series–so engrossing; there are also sidebars with fun facts about the New York landmarks Larry encounters, such as that the Metropolitan Museum of Art contains over two million artworks and that traders met on Wall Street as far back as the 1800s. Readers who haven’t yet visited the city will finish this book with a pleasant bite from the travel bug.”
—Margo Orlando Littell, Sacramento Book Review

“Larry's happy-go-lucky owners never seem to learn that they should leash Larry or leave him at home when they vacation, but Larry's temporary loss is our gain, giving us the opportunity to see the sights of big cities, and Michael Mullin's latest, Larry Gets Lost in New York City, is a wonderful beginner's tour of the Big Apple.”
Books for Kids blog
 
Larry Gets Lost in New York City takes you on a fun, informative and colorful journey through New York City.  As Larry and Pete get one step closer to each other, you'll become that much more informed about the city you live in.”
—Baby Meets City blog

“This is a first-rate lost and found journey. The book also offers stunningly bright retro-cartoon style illustrations, often from the perspective of Larry the dog that will appeal to all preschoolers.”
Park Ridge Library

“The story's colorful, retro-inspired illustrations bring the beloved city highlights to life, and make them seem magical again even to a jaded city kid who walks past them every day.”
Red Tricycle
 
“Taking a romp through the city doesn¹t have to be exhausting - just add it to your bedtime story ritual!”
Red Tricycle
 
“These wonderful, easy-reading books for children of all ages highlights many of the wonderful things to do and see while traveling to these cities. Both armchair and actual travelers will relish getting lost with Larry.”
—Cheryl Weems, Deschutes Public Library system, Bend Bulletin
 
“Informative tidbits coupled with the rhyming words of Michael Mullin make it a more enjoyable and educational read. Being lost and searching has never been this much fun, and in the end Larry and his owner Pete reunite to drive back home exhausted from all the excitement. They also take with them the promise of yet another cool adventure the next day.”
—Kaye Cloutman, Sacramento Book Review

Format: Hardcover
Larry, a geographically challenged pup, has gotten lost in cities such as Seattle, Chicago, and San Francisco. You'd think his owners would know by now to put him on a leash, but lucky for us, they don't! On a trip to the Big Apple, the hapless pooch hops off a subway when he spies a slice of discarded pizza. Quicker than you can say 'fuggetaboudit' he's on his own, searching for his family at the various landmarks of New York City. Part travelogue, part adventure, this beautifully illustrated book may be aimed at children (my seven-year-old goddaughter loves it) but adults will appreciated the well-researched information given about the many points of interest of this fascinating city.

The educational side of this book is good, however, the story side is a little boring.
My grand kids had just returned from NewYork and they were somewhat interested in the facts included but had no desire to have the story read to them a second time.

I bought this for my son after coming back from a business trip to NYC. He loves the collection and I know he's going to have a lot of fun recognizing the many landmarks highlighted in the book on his first trip there. Easy and fun read with tidbits of info for when the kids get a little older.

Like the other Larry books, this one is enjoyable and provides association or exposure of NYC landmarks for kids who live or have toured the Big Apple.

What a wonderful book!!! If you are planning a trip to NYC or want to teach someone about it, this is the perfect resource! All of THE places to see and go to are highlighted along with a cute story about a boy and his dog. The author has similar books for a few other cities. I hope he continues to write more- I'll certainly buy them!
