Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-This slight story features Max, who misbehaves in common doggy ways, including leaving dirty paw prints on the carpet, digging up the neighbor's flowers, terrorizing the mail carrier, and stealing food from the table. From a trip to the vet, the family learns that Australian cattle dogs are very active and require a lot of exercise. In fact, much of Max's behavior can be explained by the pup doing what comes naturally. Young children will focus on the brightly colored acrylic paintings on canvas that feature simple shapes and a likable dog with cartoon eyeballs. Although this supplemental purchase will be enjoyed best by very young children, the short, easy-to-read text will also provide useful practice for beginning readers.

Cute short book. My son loved this book from the first time I read it to him around 12 months old. He's now 2 1/2 and still loves it!

Our little boy was 20 months old when we checked this out of the library. The images are great, the story simple, and we also have a dog just like Max (Australian shepherd with too much energy, also a natural at catching frisbees). When we read this (many times) to our son, we always changed the words to, "Bad dog, Barley!"

Great book for kids who love dogs. My 2.5 yr old loves it! We have a dog like Max, so she can really relate to the story.
