Description

He's little! He's cute! But he's getting all dirty!

This warm, charming story perfectly captures all the ups and downs of a busy little taxi's first day on the job!

It's Maxi the Taxi's first day of work!
What fun it is to zip and zoom all around the town!

SPLASH go the mud puddles!
PLIPPITY-PLOP drips the ice cream and mustard from sticky little fingers!

Soon Maxi becomes so grimy and gooey that no one wants to ride with him.

Who will help this dirty little taxi discover what he needs most? It's a smart little boy who takes Maxi for a noisy, tickly bath in the car wash!

Contributors:

Elizabeth Upton first told Maxi's story to her son when he was three years old! She has a teaching degree from Teachers College at Columbia University, and her poetry has been included in several collections edited by Lee Bennett Hopkins. She currently works as a writer and a teacher in New York City, where she lives with her two children.

Henry Cole was born on a dairy farm near Purcellville, Virginia, and was an adored elementary-school science teacher for sixteen years. He has since illustrated over eighty popular picture books, including the multimillion-selling Moose series and other bestsellers. Mr. Cole has always loved art and science, which has made him a keen observer of details in nature. He now lives in both Florida and Virginia.
