After leaving New York, the Max costume traveled north to a town called Rowe, in the upper reaches of Massachusetts. These kids know about weather and how ferocious and brave one has to be in the middle of winter, as well as how important hot soup is during those months of frigid austerity. We hope they're even more prepared for it this year after scampering about in the Max costume for a bit. Thank you Rowe Elementary School, for indulging your feral selves. The costume is now on its way to Chicago, where its warmth will be much appreciated, we must assume. -D.E.
