Max at Night
by Ed Vere
Note: Max at Night will be released on September 3rd by Sourcebooks. A link to preorder is included at the bottom of this review.
Last September, Ed Vere’s Max the Brave hit bookstores and became a favorite of many kids (and reviewers!). Having absolutely loved the first book, I was so excited to read Vere’s sequel, Max at Night. Those of us that fell in love with Max in his debut will love the sequel!
While Max the Brave reminded readers of Are You My Mother?, Max at Night is reminiscent of Goodnight, Moon in that the little black kitten is literally trying to say goodnight to the moon. We follow on his journey as he seeks to find the moon in the sky. A super sweet, playful tale is accompanied by beautiful illustrations. With this book, Vere has definitely established Max as a beloved picture book character. This book is a great fit for Pre-K to 2 classrooms, or children’s bedroom bookshelves.
