If you combine the magic of “Goodnight Moon” with the adventure of “Where the Wild Things Are,” you will get Ed Vere’s “Max at Night.”
The rhythm is perfect, the story lovely and the illustrations marvelous. Vere’s selection of colors was spot on for the tone of the story.
The book features somewhat minimalistic illustrations that are charming and fun. The fonts chosen were a perfect match, as well.
I absolutely love everything about this story and already have read it more than once.
Fans of Vere’s first entry in this series, “Max the Brave,” won’t be able to resist this new story feature the adorable Max.
“Max at Night” will be released Sept. 6 by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky.
