Max is very young marmalade cat, with a fine round head and big furry paws. All in all he is a very happy cat, altough one thing has always troubled him - he has no tail. So he sets off on a world-wide search for its tail as he is sure he must have lost when he was a kitten. As he is very found of listening to stories, and rather good at telling them, Max regularly sends postcards home from all the different places he visits. Max never tires of telling his stories. And he weaves a common thread through all of them - keep an open mind. The ability to deal with new and different situations while taking pleasure in them is very liberating for those who, like Max, embrace this approach to life.
