Max the Brave
by Ed Vere
picture book, storytime
Max, the curious and brave kitten. He would find and catch a mouse… if only he knew what one looked like. In the style of Are You My Mother?, Max goes about asking anyone he sees if they are a mouse. Mouse wisely tells him he is a monster and points to where Mouse (the REAL monster) is sleeping peacefully. He didn’t realize Mouse would be so big. He didn’t realize Mouse’s teeth would be so big. Perhaps he should stick to chasing monsters!
The pages are rich with bright colors! This would make a great storytime book offering lots of chances to interact with children each time Max asks another animal if they are a mouse.
I would purchase this title for a public library collection and I would use this for a toddler storytime.
