Maxwell wants to climb to the very top of the big hill—make that mountain!—in his neighborhood park. Though his parents are leery, Maxwell is determined, and his sensible planning and quick thinking come to the rescue when trouble looms. Like a true outdoorsman, he has everything he needs: climbing gear, map, first-aid kit, water, snacks and something special: his trusty toy soldier, Harry. With pluck and perseverance, Maxwell and Harry overcome every bump and boulder on the road to the top.
