Summary

A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

Max is a fearless kitten. Max is a brave kitten. Max is a kitten who chases mice. There's only one problem: Max doesn't know what a mouse looks like! With a little bit of bad advice, Max finds himself facing a much bigger challenge. Maybe Max doesn't have to be Max the Brave all the time...

Join this adventurous black cat as he very politely asks a variety of animals for help in finding a mouse. Young readers will delight in Max's mistakes, while adults will love the subtle, tongue-in-cheek humor of this new children's classic. Readers of all ages will enjoy learning how to be brave with Max in this brave book for kids.

Praise for Max the Brave:
"A cat-and-mouse game to be laughed at and reread."--Kirkus
"Full of playful humor...enhanced by the humorous text, character expressions, and a not-scary monster to boot. VERDICT Highly recommended."--School Library Journal
"Both the punchy text and illustrations command attention, and plenty of readers will get a kick out of feeling superior to Max"--Publishers Weekly

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Max is a black kitten who is so sweet that people dress him up in bows. But Max forgoes bows in favor of a cape so that he can be Max the Brave and fearlessly chase mice. Too bad he doesn't know what a mouse looks like. A Q&A with various critters (Are you Mouse?) leads him right past the tricky mouse to the jaws of a formidable monster. Max the Brave fits into the tradition of cumulative picture books, such as Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo (1999) and Jon Klassen's I Want My Hat Back (2011), where the protagonist is shuffled along by other characters, with sight gags and visual cues that serve as knowing winks to the reader. Minimalist illustrations and expressive fonts are set against colorful pages to sharpen the reader's focus on Max and the other animals. It's a simple formula but one that works because of the understated humor and attractive layout. Max should find himself chasing Mouse into storytimes again and again.--Dean, Kara Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Vere (Bedtime for Monsters) introduces a small but brave black kitten who is ready to chase some mice. The problem? "Max the Brave just needs to find out what a mouse looks like." So begins a long chain of interactions with a fly, fish, flock of birds, and other animals, all of whom explain that they are not the mouse Max is looking for and send him on his way. When Max does meet a mouse, the rodent proves to be a quick thinker: "Who me?" he says. "I'm Monster!... But I did just see Mouse asleep over there." After an unpleasant run-in with a giant green creature that resembles a mutant pickle, Max decides that chasing monsters may be preferable to chasing mice. Vere sets the action against empty, construction-paper-colored backdrops that keep a tight focus on Max and the animals he meets. Both the punchy text and illustrations command attention, and plenty of readers will get a kick out of feeling superior to Max, whose bravery is surpassed only by his gullibility and naiveté.
