This may well be the best children's book ever published. I am not kidding. It is warm, funny, rhythmic, gorgeously illustrated and full of family sentiment. It will make your heart glow and will help your child learn to love books, poetry, and the musical sound of prose. May we all be as thankful as Maxie to have a home and may we all be as caring as Jim, the unsung hero of Taxi Dog, who takes him in. Do yourself and your 18 month old to 6 year old a favor and buy this book today!

As a children's librarian, I always picked this book up first during storyhour. Here is a hint! I use a dog puppet to tell the story for me! Then each child can meet and greet the puppet after the reading is over. Very interactive. Try to talk to kids about being kind to animals after you read this one - it will make them really listen to your message.

We received this book as a gift when my second child was born. Two children and 1,000 readings later, it is still a favorite. The illustrations are superb, and the rhyming lyric prose is always a joy to read. This is a book I love reading over and over again to my children.

I read this book to my son when he was 5 yrs old as part of the scholastic book order through his school. My son is now going to be graduating from high school and he still has the book. However, it has seen better days since it is in paperback! The first time I read this book to him, believe it or not, I got choked up. The illustrations and the story itself are outstanding. He treasures this book as a very happy childhood memory. I've decided as part of his graduation present that I would get the brand new hard cover so that he may always cherish it and read it to his own kids some day. :o)

Truly one of the best children's books out there. The illustrations are incredibly rich, colorful and detailed and the story is so inventive and charming. I love Maxi! I bought this book today and read it to my 4 month old daughter. It held her attention the entire time--quite a feat! It's no wonder--the beautiful lyrical story with its rhymes and the gorgeous artwork are a delightful combination. I can't say enough about this charming story. What a plus that proceeds of the book go to a worthy animal cause. I want to see more of Maxi's adventures!

Second grade boys are tough critics but I've yet to find one who didn't like "The Adventures of Taxi Dog". The story, told in rhyme, is sensitive and funny. The pictures are colorful and ripe with details. The dedication is special and should not be skipped if you are reading this one out loud.

My two year old son absolutely loves this story. The cute rhyme-style keeps his attention...and the colorful, detailed pictures keep him pointing and talking for quite some time. We particularly like all of the colorful characters who enter the taxi...this book is a real winner in our home.

One of my children's favorites. The pictures are absolutely beautiful, and the story is delightful and heartwarming. But the grammar and writing style are occasionally "off", switching case between first and third person in the same sentence; this can be a bit jarring.
