Max and Bird By Ed Vere Review
Max and Bird
ISBN: 9781492635581; September 2017
$17.99 U.S.; Hardcover; Juvenile Fiction/Picture Book
The companion to the New York Times and USA Today bestseller Max the Brave!
When Max meets Bird, Max thinks he'd like to be friends with Bird. He would also like to chase Bird and maybe eat him as a tasty snack. But that's not what friendship is all about...is it?
With the same loveable character and bright, graphic illustrations as Max the Brave, Max and Bird is sure to delight young readers and adults alike.

I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's review- A children's book that has humor and wonderful illustrations. The story is simple and easy to read, I think any age would enjoy it, but it is great for younger readers especially if they are learning to read bigger words. The message of friendship is also wonderful.
