Fun and easy to read, Max’s letters to his favourite author D.J create a brilliant story. Max writes about all sorts of things – his uncle’s mad dog Scallywag, football, the things that happen at school. But he also writes about his unhappy and complicated feelings about his mum’s new boyfriend which gradually, helped by the wise replies D.J sends, he begins to explore and come to terms with.

Synopsis

Bravo Max by Sally Grindley

After seeing a Christmas show, Max decides he'd like to write a play, so he asks DJ Lucas to help him. At the same time he is having to cope with a bossy, talkative babysitter and a new man in his mother's life. Little by little Max comes to terms with sharing his mother, and his play reveals some of the turmoil in his life.
