    Great story and adorable illustrations

    Love this book!!! My boys love it. One of my favorite books to give as a gift. So many times you will find a book that sounds cute and then you read the story. This story is just as adorable as the pictures. All kids will love it.

    Great Diversity Connection

    This is a great book for adult who want to teach diversity to young children. The book is very funny and has great pictures, but it also deals with a very serious issue in a very child friendly way. In the book, Max the dog, is not accepted by the other dogs because he is not a pure breed. This is a wonderful and fun way to teach children about tolerance as well as differences. Two thumbs up!!!

    Good Dog Max !!

    This story is darling ! As an owner of mixed breed dogs for 30 years and a reader who also buys/gives a lot of children's books, this story was fun. Anyone who has had a puppy will love Max. The illustrations are colorful and will hold a child's attention. Way to go Joy !

    Pretty Predictable

    I may be an adult, but I confess I love reading children's books on my own and take joy in adding to my collection. So maybe my review might seem a bit harsher compared to what an actual child would like, but here are my thoughts: Artwork is beautiful! Love the illustrations to pieces! They are so vividly colorful and so full of life, even when the characters are just standing around. Kudos to Gene Barretta for such amazing talent! The actual story. . .eh, not so much. First, it takes a while for the actual conflict to pop up; The first few pages are an unrelated montage where Behar tells us just how lovable, smart, cute and spunky the main protagonist is. The actual plot is basically Max the dog's visit to the dog park. First meeting a group of snobby designer dogs (all "-doodles" and "-poos") who only want to play with dogs who look like them. Max easily wins them over in a page and a half. The next day, all the mixed breeds are friends, but now the purebred dogs are the ones who are being snobby. Same exact problem with another all too simplistic solution you can easily guess before the end. Frankly, I feel the author was trying to cram too much into this book. I feel it would have been more effective to concentrate on one encounter (either Max dealing with the snobby mutts OR the mixed breeds vs. pedigree rivalry). Draw out the conflict a little longer and make the hero work harder for the happy ending. Showcase Max's talents as he deals with the problem instead of just pointing out random instances to assure us of his spunk and smarts. Instead we get an obvious morality lesson that is too easily solved without any kind of conflict or complications by the too perfect hero. This book is supposed to be for children from 3 years up to 8 years old, but the plot is feels too predictable and unimaginative to be engaging for most kids over 6. Parents should be cautious: 2nd and 3rd graders will probably be bored with it.

    pulp

    The pictures are cute, but the story is too heavy-handed for me to recommend. Give kids a little credit for understanding the point of a story without being beaten over the head with it!

    Yuck

    The name makes me want to vomit. Just another C-List celebrity hawking some project they didn't even write.

    Just exactly what our children don't need!

    This book is a vehicle for a smart-mouthed comedienne to legitmize her own predilection for potty language and make a quick buck. Not enough endearing qualities to recommend it as a book to read to 4-8 year olds, not sophisticated enough for 8-12 year olds to read on their own. Who would buy this book except a t.v. watching mom who doesn't read herself?
