About this deal

One such discussion could be about asking questions when you don't have enough information and another may be about who we can trust to gain information from. format, but in a stealthily remixed way) but from my son's response giving less than 5 stars is not an option. Yet, it is so interactive and enabled me to have a lovely discussion with my sister about bravery and animals. Something I would have loved to learn reading with, I used to tell stories from pictures before I could read words, then I would remember the words that others had read to me and tell that story. A special thank you to Great Ormond Street Hospital for inviting us along to a special evening of thanks.

Max the Brave' will be given free to over 600,000 children aged 3 to 4 in the UK thanks to the wonderful children's literacy charity , Booktrust.

The New York Times - 'Max is an expressive huge-eyed black ball of kinetic kittenness who pops against each page’s bright, differently colored background. Children are sure to follow along, fully engrossed as they wait to see if Max finally finds that darn mouse. But the funniest thing is that I had received an ARC for this book last year but never got around to reading it and it expired. Max the Brave could help initiate a discussion of how to tell if someone is trustworthy and about being careful what you wish for.

With its gruff hero, vibrant, strong colours, bold design and spare text, this story about looking beyond appearances has a satisfying punchy simplicity and jazzy feel. Definitely recommend Max the Brave for the younger ones — and would definitely be great in the classroom! When he finally does meet a mouse, that enterprising little creature assures him that he is a monster, and that the mouse Max is looking for is actually the sleeping monster nearby. Ed is also a painter, working from his studio in East London and is represented by galleries in London and Los Angeles.As he goes from creature to creature, Max shows the readers that no question is too dumb or unworthy of being asked, let alone answered. Enjoy some of our recommended books for younger children about animals, from classics like Dick King-Smith's Sheep Pig to modern favourites like Ed Vere's Mr. I wasn't disappointed though I found it quite odd that he doesn't know what a mouse is as it should be instinctual to know. Ed Vere studied fine art at Camberwell College of Art and has been writing and illustrating children's books since 1999.

This is such a great series for allowing the reader to know and understand something that the main character does not. These books are perefect to cuddle up and read with little ones, and for more confident kids to read themselves.Kids will be tickled that they can distinguish a mouse and a monster while Max doesn’t, and — spoiler alert — the monster is more funny than scary. He sets out to find a mouse to chase, but he doesn't know what one looks like, and he doesn't know all the other creatures cats like to chase either! Max is a cat who is trying to be more brave and catch a mouse — the thing is, he doesn’t know what a mouse looks like.

Although this image is quite tiny, I found this particular illustration where he climbs a tree full of birds to inquire abt mice esp cute!As well as being named one of The Sunday Times's '100 Modern Children's Classics', Max was long listed for the Kate Greenaway medal and is published in over 15 languages.
