From the best-selling author of Mama, Do You Love Me? comes a new series — Our City Adventures —and the first stop is Milwaukee, Wisconsin!

With a city like Milwaukee, there’s so much to explore!
Written by Barbara Joosse and illustrated by Renée Graef, this is the first book in the Our City Adventures series. The perfect story for those who hold Milwaukee near and dear to their heart, as well as first-time visitors who want tips on what to explore!
