Austin the dog escapes from the pet store in which he has been raised, and sets out to explore the United States in this engaging picture-book, determined to find his true home. Traveling by region, he visits all fifty of the states, learning a little bit about each as he moves along, always searching for the place where he belongs. When he finally reaches Austin, Texas, he finds what he has been seeking all along: a family of his own...

Austin, Lost in America: A Geography Adventure offers an entertaining way of learning about the fifty states for younger children. As our canine hero travels around the country, the colorful cartoon-style artwork offers a visual map-style representation of each state in turn, complete with capital city, while also depicting something to be found or experienced in that state. The decorative end-papers have a complete map of the United States, with a list of state capitals. Although I wouldn't describe Jef Czekaj's artwork as being exactly to my taste, I do think it works very well in this book, providing a colorful accompaniment to the informative text, and adding to the sense of fun. Recommended to anyone looking for entertaining and educational picture-books about the fifty states. ( )
