Publisher Comments:

Maxi, a homeless mutt in New York City, has always fended for himself. Then one day a kind taxi driver named Jim offers him friendship, a home, and a place in the front seat! From that moment on, Maxi and Jim revel in the sights and sounds of the city, and share all sorts of wild adventures-from rushing two clowns and a chimp to the circus, to singing duets with an opera diva! These and other adventures are brilliantly depicted in Mark Buehner's witty, detail-packed oil paintings.

Synopsis:

It's a dog-eat-dog world in New York City. But homeless mutt Maxi's life takes a turn for the better when a kind taxi driver named Jim offers him friendship, a home--and a place in the front seat! Full-color illustrations.
