Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rachel Miller
The story of Max and Mo is a delightful easy to read story about two hamsters who do not agree on what to do inside their cage. They decide that they want to get out. They work together to use paper chains to escape. When they do escape, Max and Mo come across a sign that shows them how to make a Halloween mask. They both decide they want to be creative and make one too. They find paper, paint, and crayons. One becomes a cat and one uses a sheet to become a ghost. They are both thrilled that they are ready for Halloween like the rest of the world. The reader of this story will be glad to learn that, at the back of the story, there are directions on how to make a mask, just like Max and Mo. The words are easily readable for the age group, and the illustrations are very creative. The illustrator uses watercolor to illustrate, which gives the feel of being creative, which is what Max and Mo are essentially doing. Children will really enjoy the adventures of Max and Mo. This is part of the "Ready to Read" series. Reviewer: Rachel Miller
