Max the Brave
This hilarious book tells the story of Max the kitten who is in search of a mouse to chase, the only problem is he doesn't know what a mouse looks like. I think the story is more diverting for adults than children as it is largely through the illustrations than the words, so I have to explain a lot of the subtleties to my LO (such as the birds all talking to Max from the ground after he climbs the tree to talk to them). But the story is simple and well told, and the ending made me smile. My daughter likes the story, but I'm not sure she fully understands the nuances which make it far more entertaining to me, although I'm sure in time it will be well loved. The illustrations are simple but clear and add so much to the story.
