Max the Brave by Ed Vere

Max knows his job is to catch mice.  His problem is that he doesn't know what they look like...

Sourcebooks Jabberwocky and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review.  It will be published September 1st.  

The illustrations in this book are striking:  Prime colors, simple lines, and a focus on the character on that page.  They add to the charm of this fun story.

Since Max knows not what a mouse looks like, he asks the other animals.  They tell him no, they are not a mouse, but they saw one scurry by.  When he finally finds the mouse, the mouse tells him he's a monster and points out the monster as a mouse...

It's cute story full of smiles for you.  I can see children pretending to be Max, the mouse or the monster.  This is a great read for young ones.
