Max at Night
Written by Ed Vere
Released September 8, 2016
Fans of Max the Brave and Goodnight Moon will be excited over Ed Vere's latest release. Max at Night is a perfect combination of the two.
Sweet Max is ready for bed and wants to say goodnight to the moon, but can't see it! He is on a mission to find the moon, and keeps climbing higher and higher until he reaches the top of a tall hill. When he calls for the moon from the top of the hill, wind hears his call and blows the clouds out of the way to reveal a big and beautiful moon. Poor exhausted Max is finally able to say goodnight and head home to bed.
The gentle illustrations and soothing text are excellent for winding down at night. Perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. I've found my beginning reader reading it on quite a few occasions.
My Rating: I've debated on this one, but I think I have decided on 4 stars. I love Max as a character, I love the illustrations, and the text, but the goodnight story is not a very original idea.
