Overview

The Larry Gets Lost series offers young readers contemporary travelogues to famous cities, complete with information on each city's landmarks and cultural attractions. With fun, fresh, retro illustrations by former Disney animator John Skewes, young readers delight in the brightly colored pages while learning about new places to visit.

For his next adventure, Larry the dog travels by cruise ship up to Alaska with his best friend Pete and Pete’s family, where they see plenty of native wildlife and spectacular scenery before Pete becomes distracted and Larry gets lost. Amazingly, he winds up a stowaway on an Iditarod sled that wins the race before he’s finally reunited with Pete.

"...the pages are full of cool Alaska facts and funny mishaps shaped into a rhythmic prose kids will love. Larry Gets Lost in Alaska starts on an Alaska Marine Highway ferry and ends in Nome, and rest assured, Larry finds some new friends along the way. Authors John Skewes and Michael Mullin are spot-on with their Alaska trivia, and any family with kids under 10 who is planning on traveling around the state should buy this book before hitting the road, water, or air."
