10 Years of Larry!

Celebrating 10 Years of Larry Gets Lost!

Ten years ago the Larry Gets Lost series launched with Larry Gets Lost in Seattle. Since then readers have explored over a dozen cities with Larry ranging from San Francisco to New York City and everywhere in between. To celebrate a decade of Larry, a special anniversary edition of Larry Gets Lost in Seattle launches in 2017, along with the companion book Seattle ABC. Birthday celebrations are taking place across the country at independent bookstores—check out the events section below to see if Larry will be hosting a storytime near you! In addition, you can host your own Larry birthday party using the activity kits that you’ll find on our Resources page. Help us wish Larry the happiest, biggest birthday ever this year by tagging any social media posts with #HappyBirthdayLarry!
