Written by Mark Sperring

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)
