Max the labrador is moving to Moscow. It seems such a big and cold place but he is soon making friends with the local dogs. The trouble is he keeps losing his ball in the park. One minute they are playing happily and the next minute the ball has vanished - is another dog stealing them? It is a very puzzling and none of the dogs can work out what could have happened to all those lovely bouncy balls until spring arrives, and with it, the answer to mystery. Set against a backdrop of Russia's majestic capital, this simple story will enthral and educate.
Winifred Riser was born in Houston, Texas. She and her husband moved to Moscow (with her dog) the day after they married. She spent her time volunteering at an orphanage, taking Russian and Russian History classes and teaching English. They have now moved back to Houston. This is her first book.
