Larry Gets Lost in Seattle is an interactive, highly visual children’s story about a young boy (Pete) who goes to Seattle with his family and is temporarily separated from his cute little dog, Larry, while sightseeing.

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
