One of the best children's chapter books I've read in a long time. I loved this story from the first sentence and was captivated so much I didn't even think to predict what would happen at the end, so was pleasantly surprised instead of saying "yeah, that's what I figured it would be". Loved the characters, especially McTavish, the "thing that was possibly a cat".

Max the Wolf was a wolf in exactly the same way that foothills are made up of real feet and a tiger shark is part tiger, which is to say, not at all.

(Max)"...most detection is simply a process of elimination." "You think better after you poop?" McTavish said. "Me too! Maybe I could be a detective."

On my worst day, I could beat a sackful of badgers. I could beat you if I was two days dead, rotting, and partially eaten. -- McTavish
