This thrilling audiobook brings to life in vivid detail the ultimate doggie adventure about a lost dog who becomes a hero. What makes this story unique is that it was inspired by the author´s real life Maltese dog, an animal actor, who performed in several operas at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. Tails of Jaxx, with its introduction to French, is an ideal first chapter book for developing readers and a stimulus for creative writing, music, and art projects. Meet Jaxx, a happy-go-lucky New York City dog, whose life is suddenly turned topsy-turvy when he gets lost during a blizzard. Wrenched away from his human family, alone, shivering, and struggling to survive, he is rescued and taken in by strangers at the Metropolitan Opera. Follow Jaxx as he tells his story while bravely coping with the challenges of adapting to living in an unfamiliar environment inside the opera house. He meets a lively cast of colorful characters, including other animals, but longs to be reunited with his family. He performs heroic deeds and encounters situations that are filled with surprises, both good and bad. Root for Jaxx, as he fulfills his new dream of performing on stage at the Metropolitan Opera.

Television actor Renato Rizzuti´s first children´s book is a throwback to early 20th century juvenile fiction, when the world knew rhymes from books, not rap, from Dr. Seuss, not Dr. Dre.
