Maxwell Mutt and the Downtown Dogs

By Steve Voake
Illustrated by Jim Field

A new series of funny, warm-hearted animal adventures for fans of Dick King-Smith, Awesome Animals and Disney classics like Lady and the Tramp; illustrated by Jim Field.

Funny stories for fans of Dick King-Smith and Disney Classic animal adventures; with art by Jim Field. Maxwell Mutt might be small, but his heart is big and the city is full of adventure. Before long, he teams up with a gang of downtown dogs: Restreppo the retired police-dog, Mr B the homely bulldog and Madison the angry poodle (do not mention his hairdo). When Maxwell hears the call of a friend in need, the dogs brave the big, bright city, where they hear tales of the Collector; the cruellest ever dog-catcher. But dreams, fun and adventure are waiting along the way…

  • From the author of the popular series Daisy Dawson and Hooey Higgins, described as 'fun adventure with bags of smiles' (Liverpool Echo) and 'A romp that might just drag a few eyes away from the Wimpy Kid books' (Kirkus Reviews).
  • Maxwell and his pals are brought to life by master-illustrator of comedic animals, Jim Field.
  • Ex-headmaster Steve Voake pitches stories perfectly for primary-age readers and their parents.
