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 got this for our son and I thoroughly enjoy reading it to him before bed. The animations are by the same animator for the Snowmen series (Snowmen at night, etc). The story is cute and the rhymes flow nicely (it's easy to read aloud).

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!

I have given this book as a gift four times -- and each time it has quickly become the child's favorite book by far. A very smart little ten-month-old I know (and love) crawls over to the bookshelf and gets "Maxi Taxi" three to four times a day and hands it to you to read it to him. I can recite the book in my sleep at this point!! The rhymes are lovely; the illustrations are sweet and the message is just beautiful. I promise you that your young children will adore this book.

I loved this book when I first got it when my children were young and now I got another copy to send to my granddaughter and read to her when I see her next. It has a lovely rhyming patter, and sweet storyline promoting rescuing unloved, unwanted pets.
