About the Book

Axel Maxey is a magical character who flies to experience adventurous places. As a dedicated traveler he finds unique places that include the glow worm caves in New Zealand, a cenote in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, the vegetable and fruit boat sellers in Thailand, and a waterfall in Oregon. He revisits the glow worm cave, remembering meeting a glow worm named Wiggles. He snorkels in the cenote and tastes mangosteen in Thailand. He stands behind a waterfall to feel the mist and hear the sound of falling water. Axel camps beneath the stars remembering his adventures and dreaming of being back home with his friend, the little boy.
