Max's brothers collected coins and stamps, but they wouldn't give any to Max. Max wanted a collection and decided to collect words. When his brothers rearranged their collections, they were still just collections. When Max rearranged his word collection, he had ideas, then sentences, and then stories which he shared with his brothers. Wonderful!

The dogs, Rose, Izzy, Frieda and Lenore are all working dogs. Rose is a border collie who goes out to pasture with the sheep. She takes her job very seriously. Izzy is a border collie, too. He was abandoned as a puppy and it took him a long time to learn how to trust again. Now, he is a therapy dog who visits sick people in hospitals and loves nothing better than to cuddle up with someone and be petted. Frieda the Rottweiler/shepherd mix was a wild dog before coming to the farm. Now, she enthusiastically guards the farm and its inhabitants from the foxes and coyotes. Lenore is a Labrador, her job is just as important as any of the others, even though she doesn't herd or guard or go visiting. She plays with the other dogs and makes sure everyone is happy. What job is more important than that? Jon Katz is a celebrated writer and photographer who lives in upstate New York. All his books, some for adults and some for children, have been about his dogs and the impact they have on his life.
