My Thoughts: We are introduced to Max, the Scottish terrier. He is a brave dog led on an adventure by the Maker (God). He follows a cloud that looks like it is on fire and feels that the Maker is speaking through the cloud to him. Max finds on his journey that he is not the only animal who believes it is getting messages from the Maker. He meets another dog, birds, a whale, cats, cows and more. They are all being drawn to Noah's ark.

I really love stories that give you the idea that animals have a deep thought process, like humans. We have Max, who is brave and believes the Maker is bringing them all together for a reason. Then there is Liz, a black cat who is a library of knowledge. This is a very creative story of how things came together for Noah's Ark, and I am interested to see where Max and Liz end up next.

About the Author: Jenny L. Cote has written three books. This is the first book in the Max and Liz series; the second is called The Dreamer, The Schemer And The Robe.  Check out her website,

This sounds like a great book; bet even those who don't regularly practice religion could enjoy and relate to this angle on the Ark. Thanks for the review, haven't heard of these.
