The Zen of Max

One of the anipals I talk to regularly and whose blog I never miss is @maxthequiltcat. I love Max’s Mousey cartoons and couldn’t wait for each new chapter of his mystery story. When I found out his mom, Lou Belcher, wrote a book about him, ‘The Zen of Max‘ I couldn’t wait to get it. I was so excited that I was lucky enough to win a copy of ‘The Zen of Max‘ at the last pawpawty.

The Zen of Max‘ is a very heartwarming book. It’s about Lou and Max, how they found each, learned from each other, and shared their lives. But all books about pets and their people have that same basic plot. What makes each book unique are the personalities of the people and pets involved, and how the writer tells their story. Well Max and Lou definitely have interesting personalites and Lou really knows how to tell a story.

I enjoyed learning things I didn’t know about Max. For example, I did not know that Max was tweeting and blogging from over the Rainbow Bridge. Max had already crossed the bridge when I met him, and I don’t think it was ever talked about when we tweeted or in his blog. At least not that I had noticed. I didn’t know that Max had moved from one state to another. I don’t even like the short ride to the park. I can’t imagine driving from one state to another. I also loved learning about Max’s idiosyncrasies.

This book is a must read. I give it a definite paws up!
