Max didn’t mean to run away, but when he found himself alone in the moonlit woods, he saw his chance for freedom. No humans to tell him what to do. No cats running the house. No one to call him Bad Dog. No fences and no rules. He could be wild and free and never have to answer to anyone again! But will that freedom turn out to be the fantastic journey he was expecting? What adventures and strange creatures will Max discover in the Ozark forest on a full-moon spring night?
Max's Wild Night is the first companion to the Cats in the Mirror series featuring Max, or the Big Black Beast from Cats. On night Max decides that he is going to chase a smell and ends up running away from home. He loves his home and his people but tonight he just wants to explore and so he does. The story follows him as he meets strange creatures, other lost dogs, a few people and explores the forest. It is a fun-filled adventure from the point of view of Max and it is very fun to read.
Max is a funny, imaginative character who wants to live life to its fullest in this night. And given that Max is a dog, and I love dogs, this book kept me riveted as I read what happened next. There were even a few nods to the Cats series which were cute.
I really like these books and the series - they are based off of real pets and the books often include photos of them to help the reader visualize them. The books are fun and I think any animal lover will enjoy reading about Max and the cats.
