Max's dream is to live in Paris and be a poet. But do you think it is easy for a dog to pack a small brown suitcase, put on a beret, and hop on a plane? Ha No one will buy Max's poems, so without money he must stay put. But living in New York City isn't so bad. Where else could he have friends like Bruno, with his invisible paintings, or Marcello, who builds upside down houses? And where else could he drop in at Baby Henry's Candy Shop? It's all possible in New York, a jumping jazzy city. And for Max, it's a dog's life that only Maira Kalman could invent.
