How many letters do you see around you? All 26 and then some is the answer in this gorgeous picture book that teaches little ones the alphabet during a journey through Seattle. The tour guides are everyone's favorite excitable pooch, Larry, and his owner, Pete. This new entry in the popular Larry Gets Lost series finds the plucky duo experiencing all that the Emerald City has to offer. They visit the Seattle Aquarium, the Woodland Park Zoo, and Lake Union, and learn about houseboats and hydroplanes, geoducks and viaducts, even evergreens and coffee! Bright colors, witty retro illustrations, and two endearing hosts make this an entertaining way for children who are visiting or live in Seattle to learn the alphabet.
