Max the Brave by Ed Vere

A few months ago, Barnes and Noble had Max the Brave by Ed Vere on sale, so I bought a copy for each of my married children. This fun picture book was published in 2015 and tells the story of Max the cute kitten. However, Max doesn't want to be seen as cute; he wants to be seen as brave because he chases mice - or at least he would if he knew what a mouse looked like.

Max sets out to find a mouse to chase, but he gets tricked and ends up chasing a monster.

Kayana, my six-year-old granddaughter, laughs and laughs when she reads this book.

The illustrations are fun and the words delightful. The Lexile  measure is AD390L. AD means adult directed, so you want to read this one with your child.

Read to a child today, even if that child is you.


  1. Aria loves this book! She has to kiss all the animals in each page. It's an adorable little book. One of our favorites.
