Max the Brave by Ed Vere


[***] Max is set to catch a mouse if only he knew what mice looked like. A fun story.

[**] I was excited to see another Steve Antony book but this fell flat to me. Reminded me of The Butter Battle Book by Dr. Seuss.

 The Queen's Hat by Steve Antony

[***] A wind sweeps the Queen’s hat off her head in this charming picture book that takes readers on a tour all over England.

[***] I usually don’t like books in verse but the rhyme scheme in this one worked well. I can see this being enjoyed during story time.

    So many good ones here. I Really Like Slop is up next for me this week, and I really want to read Max the Brave.

    I think the illustrations are the greatest part of I Really Like Slop! It is such a funny, cute series. I didn’t realize there were so many books in the series until I saw the list at the end of the book. My students just love them.

    Dealing with Dragons sounds like an interesting book – especially since you gave it 4 stars. High praise indeed! I just went and downloaded it from our local library as an audiobook. I love Max and just realized that while I read it from netgalley, I never actually bought the book. so today I ordered it and Lady Pancake.
