???? The inspiration for Mostly Maxx came from small-town life in rural Indiana. Rural life was exciting for the author, Curtis Davis when he was a small boy. Life was full of playing all day in a large cardboard box, comic books, and riding bikes. In Mostly Maxx, Davis relates his experiences of learning life's important lessons; how to be a good person, how to be kind and how much joy family can bring. ???? Each book includes two stories. In this first edition of the Mostly Maxx series Maxx uses his grandpa's fishing pole for the first time and learns that, even for a fish, there's no place like home. In the second story Maxx learns a valuable lesson in listening as he learns how to ride a bike.? ???? The adventures of Maxx are meant to be shared with caregivers and the children they love. Other stories in the series are Mostly Maxx - Maxx's First Doctor Visit and Maxx the Lumberjack and Mostly Maxx - Maxx's First Family Vacation and Maxx Goes to School. ?
