Vere captures the playful innocence of both cats and children in this tale of Max the brave kitten. Preschoolers will love correcting Max as he meets various animals on his hunt for the elusive mouse. Rich with color and feeling and just enough story make this a perfect read aloud. Max will be finding his way into multiple storytimes very soon.
And pick up a copy of Are You My Mother? while you're at it! Always a classic, it has found its natural companion here.
Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC!
