The bestselling Larry Gets Lost series heads to Portland in this colorful ABC book featuring vibrant retro illustrations of this great American city and the perpetually lost pup, Larry.

This modern, colorful alphabet book comes on the heels of the regional best-selling Larry Gets Lost in Portland. Larry and his friend Pete see Portland from A (Art Museum) to Z (Portland Zoo), and everything in between. H is for Hawthorne Bridge, P is for Powell’s Books, and W is for Willamette River—children can learn their ABCs and about their hometown! How many letters can you find around you?
