Max didn’t mean to run away, but when he found himself alone in the moonlit woods, he saw his chance for freedom. No humans to tell him what to do. No cats running the house. No one to call him Bad Dog. No fences and no rules. He could be wild and free and never have to answer to anyone again! But will that freedom turn out to be the fantastic journey he was expecting? What adventures and strange creatures will Max discover in the Ozark forest on a full-moon spring night?
“Max’s Wild Night” is a companion book to the best-selling, award-winning Cats in the Mirror series.
First thing I think when I see this book is how amusing it looks. I was also quite excited to get a new book to read with my son. I also didn't know what to expect with this story. I've read a couple children's books that featured a real dog... and they weren't good.
So, I started it. We'd read a bit each night, but I would read ahead even when I knew he had fallen asleep. Because I do what I want! *cue evil laughing* It was much better than anticipated. I was surprised with how much I enjoyed this story.
Max is a hoodlum, like any normal dog. I thought the story from his point of view was done rather well. It reminded me of my dogs, in a lot of ways.
Although this was written more for kids, I found it to be a fun and quick read for myself. Highly recommended for anyone who loves dogs and would like to see what shenanigans they're up to when they go off on their adventures.
