In this new adventure, Larry, after chasing down a donut, loses his owners and stops by San Francisco's landmarks and cultural attractions on his quest to find them. Filled with candy-colored retro illustrations, this lively book gives children a dog's-eye view of the City by the Bay. Larry hits all the highlights: the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, Ghirardelli Square, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, AT&T Park, Mission Dolores, and the historic Cliff House overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Sidebar entries add to the story, offering factoids about each of the places the peripatetic pooch visits.
