The Adventures of Max and Ned


One dark and stormy night, when the Barnyard Big Band's bus nearly collides with the Sunshine Circus train, a donkey named Max meets a zebra named Ned. Max has always dreamed of running free on an African savanna, while Ned would love to live in a comfy barn. Hmm, what can they do? Illustrations by Australian artist Rod McRae bring to life this "trading places" animal fantasy.
