"Meet Max - the mighty kitten and New York Times bestseller.
This is Max. Max is very sleepy. It's way past Max's bedtime. Max has drunk his milk. Max has brushed his teeth. Max has cleaned behind his ears. Now Max just needs to say goodnight...
Max is tired and all ready for bed, but when he can't find the moon to say goodnight to, he sets out to find it. But that's not as easy as Max had hoped... Witty and heart-warming, this stylish and beautifully illustrated book is the perfect bedtime read."
Review: What a great bedtime story! The illustration was just too cute, and the story itself is just as charming as sweet little Max. This is a wonderful picture book for both girls and boys of all ages.
First off, I loved where the story took us with the whole search for the moon. Like I said before, Max is a charming kitten who simply wants to say goodnight to the moon. I loved how the illustration completely focuses on Max and his journey, and everything else was merely background. He stumbles across a few obstacles that has you guessing how he'll find his way to say goodnight, which I believe will intrigue both children and adults. Part of me does wish the story itself was slightly more elaborate, but all in all, a great book to help tuck in your little ones at night.
I can't wait to read this to my soon-to-be little one to help tuck her in at night.
