- "Max's adventures in the Ozark forest and mountains are exciting....The fact that freedom comes with its own risks is a good lesson that young readers will learn after seeing Max and his dangerous adventures that night when he runs away from home. The detailed narration makes the scenes vivid and will draw young readers into the story. The author's fluidity in expression gives the story a good pace, and there is never a dull moment in the plot, from start to finish." Readers' Favorite--5 star review
- "This was a fun book. It involves characters from Ms. Dendler's other books, but it doesn't mention the cat-aliens at all. It was just a story about a dog running through the Ozark Mountains on an adventure. It was cool getting into a dog's perspective. It was realistic, and reminded me of my dog, Clyde. I felt like I was there with Max and his new-found friends. Ms. Dendler knows how to draw you into a story. Max was a nice character, and you feel kind of sorry for him and you can't wait for him to succeed. The black-and-white illustrations throughout the book are done really nice. They have a cool sketched feeling about them. I think younger kids will love this series! I give this five out of five bookworms!" This Kid Reviews Books
- "Max's Wild Night by Meg Welch Dendler was an amazing read. I read this to my furbabies, especially my little hoodlum Demon. Reading to him at night seems to make him sleep easier. I really enjoyed reading the story from Max's POV. I am a dog lover, and I thoroughly enjoyed this story even though it is geared to younger people. Good books don't come with age limits. I thought the story flowed. It gave me a chance to bond with the furbabies. They all sat quietly to hear about the shenanigans Max was up to. I would definitely recommend this book to others. I give it 5/5 Platypires." Platypire Book Reviews
