This is a charming book for young readers that depicts an innocent cat desperate to be brave and fearless. Max, however, unfortunately gets hoodwinked, with younger readers finding the case of mistaken identity comical.
Children will love the simple, yet striking, depiction of Max who is illustrated in black against an abundance of brightly-coloured pages.
Max the Brave is recommended for readers aged three and over, who will love the simple text and illustrations, and will enjoy laughing at the cheeky little mouse that comes out on top.
