Max the Brave by Ed Vere

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Meet Max the Brave, a brilliantly witty new character from acclaimed author and illustrator, Ed Vere. Told with deadpan humour and with beautifully stylish illustrations, this is something to be enjoyed by parents and children alike.

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Max wants to chase a mouse, but can’t find one. When he does finally meets one, the mouse tells him that he is in fact a ‘monster’ and there is a ‘mouse’ sleeping nearby. Max has a lucky escape from the large, green, sharp-toothed ‘mouse’ and decides he is better off chasing small, long-tailed ‘monsters’ instead. This is an amusing tale about misdirection, featuring fun characters and stylish illustrations. (Ages 2–5)

Max the Brave by Ed Vere

This is Max. Doesn't Max look sweet. Max looks so sweet that sometimes people like to dress him up in ribbons. Max does not like being dressed up in ribbons. Because Max is a fearless kitten. Max is an intrepid kitten. Max is a brave kitten. Max is a Kitten who chases Mice.
