When a homeless woman gives Maxzyne a painting of a French poodle like the one in a storefront display, Maxzyne finds herself at the center of a rescue mission when a wayward freight elevator, a family of enchanted vintage mannequins, and a secret tunnel propel her into the mysterious depths of a historic Chicago department store. Can she convince the ghastly Gigi not to use the mannequins' heads in her art exhibit before it's too late? It's a race against the clock for Maxzyne and her new mannequin sidekick Elise. However, Maxzyne's overactive imagination and tendency to get distracted won't save the mannequin family. First, she must learn some lessons about loyalty, bravery, generosity, and, most of all, that being responsible for your actions is the first step toward growing up. A spirited, fun adventure story, Maxzyne Meets the Mannequins will be a delightful read for children of all ages.
