Praise

“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.”

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.”

“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
