  • 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
    “Readers will delight in Max’s mistakes and love his quirky and playful adorableness. The bright colors, silly humor and not-so-scary monster will make this a favorite read. ” - Fort Worth Star-Telegram

    “Every kid needs a dose of bravery now and then, and “Max the Brave” by Ed Vere is the gift to wrap and give it. It’s the story of a fearless kitten in a not-so-fearless search for a mouse. I loved the illustrations! ” - Bookworm Sez

    “Another snazzy book that will appeal to design-savvy parents is Max the Brave...Max is an expressive huge-eyed black ball of kinetic kittenness who pops against each page’s bright, differently colored background. Kids will be tickled that they can distinguish a mouse and a monster while Max doesn’t, and — spoiler alert — the monster is more funny than scary.” - The New York Times Sunday Book Review
