Editorial Reviews

Review

“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

“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

“One of the best ABC books about Seattle around (yes, there are that many).”
—Rachel Hart, Seattle magazine
 
“…short, sweet and pure eye candy. The best kind of treat of all.”
—Rachel Hart, Seattle magazine

My wife and I visited Seattle this summer and wanted to pick up a local book about the city that we could share with our son (who traveled with us, but in my wife's uterus). The story of Larry and Pete was beautifully illustrated and we enjoyed the extra details about the city imbedded in the story. After spending 4 days in the city, we saw most of the sights detailed in the story-although, unlike Pete, we had a map. The story is endearing on another level because as we welcomed our son into the world this weekend we named him Pete! We are pretty sure that Larry Gets Lost in Seattle is already his favorite book.

I really enjoy the illustrations in this book, as well as the premise of the story, and the actual wording/rhymes. I appreciate that there are facts about various landmarks scattered throughout the book as well. My daughter is too young to gather feedback from her, but I feel like this is a book most children would enjoy.

My daugher loves this book. She is two and received it as a gift on her first birthday. It has always been one of her favorites. She loves looking for Larry the dog throughout the story. She has fun recognizing the Seattle landmarks. It's a great book for any time of day, but it makes a wonderful bed time story. Highly recommend.

One of my kids' favorite books and has been for a few years. A lot of fun whether you live in Seattle or are planning a visit. Clever rhymes are catchy without being obnoxious or cheesy. We've given this as a gift several times.

We loved this. We live near Seattle, so we took a Residential Tourist day and visited every location in the book! It takes all day to do this but it was really fun. We took pictures of my kids and our Guide Dog for the Blind Puppy at every stop. We added these photos to the book and turned it into a lift the flap book. We gave these to family members for Christmas.

Even I you can't do the trip to see everything, this book is a great way to do it vicariously! Cute story and great pictures.

The book is a charming way to invite people to come to our beautiful city. Whether to settle here or visit, it is a map not to miss the sites in a cheerful funny way. Finally, put us on the map come see us. It really doesn't rain that much and how green it is. Go Hawks!!! windchimes.

The story is kind of cute. The illustrations could be more detailed. The Seattle sites are very distinct in real life and the illustrations do not show that. The rhyming parts and the informational parts are not arranged in an easily readable manner.

For anyone who has lived in Seattle, or wants to live in Seattle, or just plain likes Seattle, this is the book for you! In reality this book is for the children, but I enjoyed it as much as my grandson, Oliver.

Larry is the boy and Pete is the dog in this lovely story. They see Seattle at its best, Somehow Larry and Pete become separated and they find their way around this city. From the Ferry ride to Pioneer Square to the Pike Fish Market and all over the town. Oliver's parents found some excellent places to take Oliver while they explored the city, A few weeks ago they went to the Ballard Locks and had a wonderful experience.

Every child and every parent likes a good book. This is one of those books that child and parent will enjoy. It is a great deal of fun to explore your own city in a book and John Skewes and Robert Schwartz have found the perfect compliment in story and pictures. Great for ages 3-103.

Highly Recommended. prisrob 07-15-09
