Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Well illustrated, and a nice story. Sightseeing with her uncle, Lisa gets lost because she gets distracted window shopping when she sees a circus made entirely out of cake (and who wouldn't!). Lisa finds a policeman when she is lost, and he refers her to the information desk--this is a helpful way to teach kids what to do when they get lost.
