For middle grade readers who go crazy for stories with cute dogs, this is the perfect pick.
Meet Max—a very special dog with a very important purpose. As soon as he sets eyes on CJ, his new owner, Max knows that she’s his girl and quickly figures out his purpose: to show her how to navigate the big city. Being a native New Yorker, Max knows how to take charge, even though he’s the smallest dog at the park. At the same time, with CJ’s help, Max learns that he doesn’t always have to be tough—sometimes, he can be “gentle Max” and make friends.
