Max, the King of Chagrin Falls Mar 21, 2000
I just met the author and the illustrator of this book at a local bookstore. Annie, Max's sister was also there, but Max was too dirty to come. The book is well written, and the illustrations are enjoyable. I read this book to a 3rd-grade class today (I'm a substitute teacher), and they enjoyed it. They laughed at several points, especially when Max rolled in fresh horse poop. I recommend it for 2nd grade through 5th grade. This book is a self-published book, but that does not mean that it is lacking in quality. Sandra Phillipson (the author) chose the self-publishing route mainly because she wanted Robert Takatch (the illustrator) to illustrate it, and she was afraid if she went through a publisher, she would lose that option. He knows these dogs and has done a nice job of conveying their personalities through his artwork. I tried to give this book 4 and a half stars instead of 4.

My kids love this book! We met the author at a book signing and saw both this book and her other about their other dog, Annie. It is a great book that will make you and your kids howl out loud. These books are great - the other is Annie loses her leg but finds her way and is very special. Your kids will love these books and the illustrations in them.
