Larry Gets Lost in Chicago – Book Review

Larry Gets Lost in Chicago is a light-hearted story of a dog (Larry) that tags along on an adventure with his owner’s family. The book begins by introducing Larry and his owner (Pete…a little boy) taking the Metra into the city.

The family walks around the Magnificent Mile, grabs a Chicago-style hotdog at Navy Pier, and waits for a train on the platform. As the family enters a train, Larry gets distracted and does not get on it. As the train leaves, Larry boards a different one in hopes to find his family.

Major Chicago landmarks are presented in a colorful and unique way. Larry looks for Pete at Wrigley Field, while Pete looks for Larry at US Cellular Field. Pete ends up at the John Hancock Center at the same time that Larry is in the Willis Tower.

As the story unfolds, you also get to read about (in caption form) what the Chicago icons are all about.  And, yes, Larry does eventually find his friend.

Author Michael Mullin uses a poetic pen to tell this series. Other places Larry gets lost in: San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, New York, and Los Angeles.

  1. Oh we have to get this next week. We have read your last recommendation 2 or 3 times now and I am certain someone would like to read it again tonight. If only they would eat their veggies now lol. Thanks for all the great book recommendations

    • Boomie Bol: Thank you so much for nominating me for the reader appreciation award! I appreciate your kindness. I’m still working on writing about the award you gave me last month…our house has been an open hotel for the past two weeks for our family so I’m finally getting back into “normal” life again 🙂

    • That is so awesome! I, too, love his art. I recently picked up the San Francisco book of this series. My son LOVES when he finds Larry on each page. What a sweet gig you must have. Thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to reading your blog 🙂
