NEW! Now Available: Max's Rules by Sandra Philipson, illustrated by Jenny Campbell
This book stars Max, Annie and the puppy, Tak. Based on an actual incident, this is the story of what happens when a new puppy joins the Max and Annie family. Annie feels motherly, but Max is mad and sad. He feels he has been replaced. The only way to get everyone's attention and to keep the puppy under his control is to devise a set of rules for the new dog. As usual, Max goes too far and makes up too many rules for his little brother, Tak. Annie steps in and helps everyone in the family appreciate each other, and Max sees his brother in a new light. The book was written in consultation with over 12,000 elementary and middle school students in the midwest and is appropriate for those bringing home a new baby, a new puppy or anyone who wants a good laugh.
