Maxi the Little Taxi by Elizabeth Upton- ADVISABLE

Upton, Elizabeth. Maxi the Little Taxi, PICTURE BOOK. Scholastic Press, 2016. $17.99. Maxi is starting his first day in the city as a taxi. He zooms here and there and gets dirty and sticky in the process. Soon no one wants a ride because he’s such a mess. Eventually a young boy and his mom decide to use Maxi for a ride and take him to get all cleaned up. Maxi feels much better and can get his riders to their destination and himself back to the garage in a jiffy. The pictures in this book are very cute. The storyline was engaging throughout and stayed consistent without any extras that didn’t seem necessary. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
