The story is about a dog that drives with his master Jim. At the ending of the story there is robber that steels a woman's purse and then Maxi saved the day by getting the robber. Jim starting to be cool because he has a hero dog like Maxi.

My favorite part is when Maxi saved the day by getting the robber. Sometimes it is good to have dog and sometimes it is not good to have a dog. In the story Maxi is a cool dog just like my dog. My dogs name is Tigre. In English that's Tiger.

I think the pictures were cool and nice. A lot of people think that when they see a dog it's bad. But I don't think about dogs that way. I think somebody that like adventure stories should get Maxi the hero, because the book was funny and I think the kids will enjoy this book.
