Max the Brave; Ed Vere


Max the Brave; Ed Vere
Sourcebooks - Jabberwocky 
Sept-2015

Max is one brave kitty. People think he is cute and some try to pretty him up with bows etc, but Max is determined to show how brave and to prove what a great mouse hunter he is....if only he know what a mouse looked like!

At the turn of each page we see Max mistake birds for mice and even wonders whether an elephant might be a mouse.  When he encounters finally encounters a real mouse, the mouse tells him he is a monster and sends him off on his way in the direction of a real monster who is fast asleep.  Max quickly learns that chasing and catching mice isn't all that much fun and can even prove dangerous, but fortunately all works out well in the end.

Simple, but bold drawings on brightly colored pages and just the right amount of fun text for young children make this book a fun read.  The cat & mouse hunt is a style that is fun to read again and again to small children.

4.5/5 stars
