Staff Reviews


Max is the best and most considerate cat.

— From Annie

The companion to the New York Times and USA Today bestseller Max the Brave!

Max is done being brave, and now it's time to sleep—all he has to do is say good night. But something's wrong! When Max goes to say good night to the moon, it's nowhere to be found. Unable to sleep without finishing his nighttime ritual, Max embarks on a journey to find the moon and wish it a good night.

Praise for Max the Brave:

"A cat-and-mouse game to be laughed at and reread." —Kirkus

"Full of playful humor...enhanced by the humorous text, character expressions, and a not-scary monster to boot. VERDICT Highly recommended." – School Library Journal

"Both the punchy text and illustrations command attention, and plenty of readers will get a kick out of feeling superior to Max" —Publishers Weekly

Ed Vere studied fine art at Camberwell College of Art in London. In addition to illustrating children’s books, Ed is also a painter and is represented by galleries in London and Los Angeles. After a year and a half living in Barcelona, Ed now lives and works in London.
