Max the Brave by Ed Vere
Penguin Australia, 2014. ISBN 9780723286691
Coming hard on the heels of Small and I cooing over a very small, very playful black kitten at the pet shop on Saturday, we shared this absolutely gorgeous book from Ed Vere.
'This is Max.
Max is a fearless kitten.
Max is a brave kitten.
Max is a kitten who chases mice.
But what does a mouse look like?'
Max is the sweetest tiny black kitten with loads of personality. Off he goes to discover Mouse because after all how can he bravely hunt an animal if he doesn't know what it looks like?
Children will just love Max's quest as he comes across the various animals trying to discover Mouse.
I was not familiar with Ed Vere's work until seeing this book but just adore his illustrative style and will certainly be looking out for more. This one is a keeper as we are very much 'kitten' folk!
Big and small people alike will enjoy this clip of Ed demonstrating how to draw one of his popular characters.
