the comedic hurdles that seem to follow Max wherever he goes. Ruby

the play on time. "Max and Ruby" features music and lyrics
by Carol Hall and is based on the popular stories by noted children's
author Rosemary Wells and the animated television series on Nickelodeon.
With songs including "Things in Twosies," "Cowboy!,"
