Max and Bird Review

Meet Max – the mighty kitten and New York Times bestseller.

When Max meets Bird, Max thinks he’d like to be friends with Bird. He would also like to chase Bird and maybe eat him as a tasty snack.

But that’s not what friendship is all about . . . Is it?

 Max and Bird Review

I haven’t read the previous Max books. I had no clue Max was even a well-known kitten, or who his creator was. I stumbled upon this book on Netgalley and decided to check it out. Something about it just snagged my attention, even though I can’t quite say what. After all, the art is kind of squiggly and the title is rather, er, blunt.

I’m glad I checked it out. Max and Bird is a ridiculously cute book for beginning readers. The colors, simple illustrations, and well-chosen but sparse words all work together to create a special kind of magic. The fact that it relays a message about friendship is just icing on the cake.

At only 32 pages long, it’s the perfect size for curious kiddos just beginning their reading journey. Ed Vere does have something special going on here. Max and Bird is worth checking out, squiggles and all.
