Overview

Six-year-old Maxine is dog crazy. She draws dogs, she has dogs on her T-shirts, she even drags home neighbors' dogs in the hopes that her parents will let them stay. On a walk to the park with her big brother, Hugh, Maxine stops every time she sees a dog, hoping for a kiss or a tail-wag from the four-footed friends she adores. Hugh and some of the pet owners she meets along the way teach Maxine how to know when it is safe to approach, how to greet, and what to do to ensure a happy experience for both child and canine. Whether they're small or big dogs, working or guard dogs, old or young dogs, even aggressive dogs, Maxine learns how best to deal with each situation. And though she aches to have them all, she is about to find out that the best dog is her own dog -- the squiggly surprise her parents have waiting for her. Written so that young children can learn to read dog language, the veterinarian-approved information is presented in a charming storyline that is sure to appeal to young children.

Author Information

Carolyn Jackson has been a journalist and book editor for longer than she cares to admit. She has a Journalism degree from Ryerson University and was an editor and travel writer for newspapers before becoming editor of Air Canada's enRoute magazine. Following fifteen years in Montreal as the editorial director of a publishing company, she is back in her hometown of Toronto where she divides her time between writing and editing and grandparenting. Her other books for children include The Flying Ark, Animals! A Big Information Book, and The Old Farmer's Almanac for Kids. France Brassard was born in Quebec. At a very young age, she received, in a Christmas stocking, a tiny picture book. She was enchanted and thought that it was the most wonderful gift. The magical world of illustration has fascinated her ever since. After pursuing studies in both Interior and Graphic Design, she decided to become a professional illustrator. With more than fifteen years of experience in her chosen field, France has now illustrated numerous children's books. She lives in a little city in the province of Quebec with her adorable five-year-old son, Luke.
