The story is about a taxi a man named Jim and a dog named Maxi. Maxi is a stray dog that lived in the park. Maxi would walk the streets looking for food at night. He did this to avoid going to the pound. One day Jim the taxi man saw Maxi and asked, ?Are you lost? You can come home with me!? Maxi was happy because he had a new home. Jim put a new red scarf on his Maxi.

Reading this book reminds me of when I get in a taxi to go to my friends house. The pictures are very funny like the one with the clowns doing funny tricks. I like the part when Jim?s boss named Lou gave a treat to Maxi. That?s a great thing to do for the dog cause he could be hungry. I think Maxi is a very happy dog because he helps Jim ride around in his taxi.

I like this book because it is a good story to read. And other people should read this book. I recommend this book to kids my age who like to read. This book is great for kids who like adventures
