Book Synopsis:

Do you ever wonder what your dog is dreaming about when its paws twitch? You might be surprised….

Some dogs can spend up to sixteen hours a day sleeping. For Max, a pugnacious French bulldog from Texas, this provides plenty of time for him to explore the world through his vivid imagination. His dreams are a doorway to excitement and adventure. Whether he’s solving mysteries, rescuing other animals, or just plain saving the day, Max’s heroic exploits carry him around the block, around the country, and even around the planet. From the plains of Africa to the battlefields of France and into outer space, Max matches wits with everything from a zombie accountant to rodent gangsters and a myriad of mythical creatures. And in the end, the fearless and faithful little dog always makes it home in time for dinner.

Book Review:
The Olympus Cloud is a book about the many adventures of a French Bull dog named Max who dreams of different escapades. Max is funny, smart, and can do anything he aspires to do. Every experence that Max does in The Olympus Cloud is full of twists and turns, leaving you craving for more.
One of my personal favorite tales in The Olympus Cloud is the Murder Most Foul at the Witch's Banquet. It is one of my favorites because it includes some mythical creatures that will make you laugh and it also leaves you gawking at the final plot twist. Overall The Olympus Cloud is a funny book for all ages about a curious dog.
