Will Max the Brave find a mouse?

Max the Brave is a kitten who loves chasing mice. Unfortunately, this kitten has no idea what a mouse is! So, this adventure takes Max through exploring and gullibility. Be a part of Max’s adventure and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway, available until October 31!

Several weeks ago, I found Max the Brave on NetGalley. When I first read this story to my six year old I used animated voices to represent various creatures and encouraged him to get excited through the storyline. Not too long ago, I was approached to be a part of the Max the Brave book tour. I did everything I could to be a part of this book tour because I knew my son would enjoy it, too. He absolutely loved this story and was thrilled when I told him we got the book in the mail! An actual book he can skim through and read all in his own now!

This fearless kitten searches for a mouse. He asks other creatures if they are mouse. He gets pointed in the right direction, when finally he approaches a big green monster looking creature. Wait, is THAT mouse?

His favorite line is “Max is a brave kitten.”

Max the Brave, by Ed Vere, is artistically and creatively assembled. It is simple for children to read without the distractions of scenery. Sometimes, a setting is too much for the main idea of the story. Lovely colors and an excellent cape to enhance Max’s bravery seals the perfection in this book.

Even as an adult and parent, I love this book. It took my son on an adventure he would never have experienced. And I thoroughly enjoyed reading it to him before he knew most of the words several weeks ago. Oh, how quickly they speed through learning to read at the first grade! Now, he can read most of it to me!
