This story makes my little grandson so happy.

My 4 1/2 year old grandson loves this story. In early December, he made his first trip to New York City to celebrate his great-grandmother's 100th birthday on Long Island and was enthralled with his first airplane ride, his first yellow cab ride, the small amount of snow (we live in SE Alabama) and the fact that we spent an extra night near LaGuardia Airport because of weather.
Souveniers of the trip were: a pin given to him by a Delta pilot, a toy Delta airplane, a toy New York City taxi cab and especially this book. He still asks to have it read to him several nights a week. and his favorite quotes are: I"I'm outta here!" and "the dog who is glad to be free".
I'm very happy with the message: Freedom is nice, but the most important thing in life is family. It always gives me an opportunity to discuss putting people ahead of things, pointing out that in the end Bart love Max more than freedom.
