About This Book
It's a dog-eat-dog world in New York City.
Maxi, a homeless mutt in New York City, has always fended for himself, roaming the city streets scavenging for food.. Then one day a kind taxi driver named Jim offers him friendship, a home, and a place in the front seat! From that moment on, Maxi and Jim revel in the sights and sounds of the city, and share all sorts of wild adventures — from rushing two clowns and a chimp to the circus, to singing duets with an opera diva, and one hilarious Groucho Marx disguise!!
These and other adventures are brilliantly depicted in Mark Buehner's witty, detail-packed oil paintings.
"For dog fanciers, taxi riders and lovers of fine picture books, this is a sheer delight". — Publishers Weekly
