Lulu and her cousin Rocky are visiting Music City--Nashville! There are so many fun things to see and do, like visiting the Goo-Goo Shop to make the famous candies, climbing the dragon at Fannie Mae Dees Park, and standing on the stage of Ryman Auditorium. Written by Barbara Joosse and illustrated by Renée Graef, this third book in the Our City Adventures series explores the city of Nashville, visiting well-known sites like the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Adventure Science Center, as well as unexpected gems.
