Max is the cook's dog. And because he is also the king's taster, Max gets to feast on

French Fries!

Rose Pudding!

Cheese Pie!


No wonder Max loves his job. Who wouldn't want to dine on these delicious dishes?

The new king, that's who.

And if the new king has his way, it won't just be their job that the cook and Max lose!

  • “A crackerjack treat.”

    Booklist (starred review)

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Children will be intrigued by Max’s job; the ironies of its benefits, given a king who won’t eat, are milked to full comic effect.”

    Horn Book

  • “The narrative has the structural neatness of a fairy tale, with a central problem that gets knottier and knottier until a magical-seeming but logical twist straightens the whole thing out.”
