Maxi, the Heroby Debra Barracca, Mark Buehner
Maxi the taxi dog is back with his partner Jim, all set for new adventures. Starting off in their cab, they pick up two sailors just in from Tahiti, then watch a parade with giant floats, and stop for frankfurters and a blueberry tart. When someone cries "Stop, thief!" Maxi speeds off in hot pursuit of a purse snatcher, while Jim cheers him on. How Maxi finally catches the thief and is proclaimed a hero to the applause of the crowd makes this a rousing tale for all young readers.
Maxi, first introduced in the widely acclaimed The Adventures of Taxi Dog (also published by Dial), once again makes a virtuoso appearance in Mark Buehner's brilliant and joyous paintings depicting the warm, affectionate relationship between two best friends. Debra and Sal Barracca's engaging tale will be happily welcomed by all who loved Maxi's first adventures, and is bound to earn a host of new fans for this wonderful mutt.
