The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Max turns his bedtime into an extraordinary magic show where he tames the most savage of beasts (Brian the pet dog); magically disappears (into the bathroom to brush his teeth); and magically manifests his soft toys (from the wardrobe and under the bed). This endearing and enjoyable story looks at the bedtime routine from a different angle, cleverly turning it into a fun and exciting magic act. (Ages 2–5)

Synopsis

Max and the Won't Go to Bed Show by Mark Sperring

A fabulously funny extravaganza conjured up by dynamic duo Mark Sperring and Sarah Warburton. Perfect for bedtime! Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Roll up, roll up, for Max the Magnificent and his world famous show: putting off bedtime for as long as possible! Cheer as he makes a cookie disappear (very slo-o-o-wly)! Gasp as he asks for ten bedtime stories (yes, ten)! Will the show go on all night, or will Max finally go to sleep?
