Max the Brave Synopsis

The Good Book Guide Review

Max wants to chase a mouse, but can’t find one. When he does finally meets one, the mouse tells him that he is in fact a ‘monster’ and there is a ‘mouse’ sleeping nearby. Max has a lucky escape from the large, green, sharp-toothed ‘mouse’ and decides he is better off chasing small, long-tailed ‘monsters’ instead. This is an amusing tale about misdirection, featuring fun characters and stylish illustrations. (Ages 2–5)
