Max Synopsis

From the winner of the 2013 Crichton Award for Australia's best new illustrator Marc Martin, comes this heartwarming and enduring tale of friendship . . . and chips. Down by the seafront there is a seagull. This seagull is called Max. And Max LOVES chips. Max helps out in Bob's fish and chip shop, and in the evening they go fishing. Together they make the perfect team. Until one summer when everything changes... the once bustling seaside is now quiet and abandoned. Bob is nowhere to be seen and Max is lost without his oldest friend. Max must find Bob in the only way he knows how... by following the smell of chips. Will Max be able to find his way? And will he be reunited with his friend? This stunningly vibrant and moving book is the perfect summer story for all little readers.
