Little readers who are big fans of John Skewes’ Larry Gets Lost in San Francisco will be delighted to know that Larry, the easily distracted but adorable pup, is back in the Bay! In this follow-up board book: “Larry Loves San Francisco,” kids will be able to travel with Larry and his favorite boy, Pete, to revisit San Francisco’s most famous sites. With cheerful illustrations and simple text, your little San Franciscan just might be able to tackle this book aloud and on his or her own.


Lovely, Lively Illustrations
Bedtime story or rainy afternoon read, “Larry Loves San Francisco” will jumpstart your kid’s love for the Bay all over again. With retro-illustrations that’ll remind you a little of 1950’s pop art, this picture book is a visual delight for both parents and tots. Join Larry as he rides over Golden Gate Bridge and trots his way through the Japanese Tea Garden. Kids of the Bay will squeal and point as they recognize San Francisco’s most vibrant attractions.

Why Your Tot (and You) Will Love It
Unlike the Larry Gets Lost series, the text in “Larry Loves San Francisco” makes reading practical for budding book worms (ages 1-3). The sentences are simple and undemanding (following the rhythmic pattern of “Larry loves _____”). By the last page — whether your little ones want to follow mom and dad’s voice or try reading on their own — they’ll be able to identify all the iconic imagery the City has to offer.

“Larry Loves San Francisco!” is $9.99, and will hit the shelves on March 18, 2014. You can pre-order your copy online at For more information on the Larry Gets Lost series, visit the website here.
