Book Review: Max the Brave by Ed Vere

Max the Brave is a picturebook by Ed Vere. This is Max. Max the Brave, Max the Fearless, Max the Mouse-catcher. However, in order to be a Mouse-catcher he needs to know what a mouse is. So off Max goes to find out.

Max the Brave has the fun and wit through the story that I have come to expect from Vere. The text is simple, with bold background colors and relatively simple artwork that catches the attention. Max is a lovable kitten tired of being dressed up and called cute or sweet. So he goes in search of a mouse so that he can become 'Max the Brave'. I love the variety of critters Max runs into and hopes to be mice. The story is simple, fun, and has a sweet little giggle at the end.

Max the Brave is a great book for catching and keeping the attention of young readers. The youngest readers will be enthralled by the colors and story, while those just beginning to read for themselves could conquer this book and have some added satisfaction. A recommended book for library and home collections.
