Overview

hat's a dog to do when he's dissatisfied living a dog's life? Try another one, of course. But Maxx's life isn't too shabby...for a dog. He has a loving family and a nice home, but he's still unhappy. He eagerly watches his owner, Alex, play ball with neighborhood friends and get on a big yellow bus nearly every day. Maxx wonders and dreams of what it would be like to be a boy and ride that bus.

One day his Fairy Dogmother, visiting from the CCDD (Canine Council for Dogs in Distress) appears and offers Maxx a wish. She is surprised to find out that he not only wants to be a boy but he wants to be Alex! She warns Maxx that problems may arise because of this particular wish and gives him an obstacle to find a special wishing bone before his wish can come true!

Maxx and the Wishing Bone is an enchanting tale wonderfully illustrated with lively, off-beat characters by graphic artist Avery Easter. Parents can expect to pick this one up for bedtime reading again and again.

Maxx has grown tired of living a dog's life and dreams of one day being a boy when his Fairy Dogmother appears and offers him one wish, but he must first find a special wishing bone.

    HARD LESSONS LEARNED EASY

    I recently read Maxx And The Wishing Bone to my twin girls. I was happy to see them engage in many questions of empathy afterward. The next day I read it to them again, still more questions. Each time I read this delightful book to my twins, I received more questions. The questions they were asking to MY delight were all from the perspective of another. They were each time, trying to find out how OTHERS FELT. They were learning empathy. That is one of the most important things any child can learn. Their questions of empathy soon spread their own lives and I didn¿t waste one. So not only can they learn empathy, but they can enjoy it too. Maxx wants to be someone else, his boy. He gets his wish and finds his boys¿ life not what he expected. He finds he understands his boy so much more as well as himself. Understanding how we fit into our world is huge for us all. Learning that in this enjoyable book, is a true gift. I will continue to read Maxx to my girls and give it as a gift to all my favorite moms and children.

    A good bedtime storybook!

    Maxx wants to be a boy. The message kids will get from this story is to be happy being what God created you to be.
