Overview

Ruby tries every trick she knows to get Max to eat his egg, finally demonstrating how yummy it is herself! All gone! chortles Max. Rosemary WellsÆs original four Max books, brought out in 1979, were the first high-quality board books published. Combined with the second four, published in 1985, total sales are over one million! And Mrs. WellsÆs followers are legion. Now she has completely reillustrated her eight delightful Max board books in her exciting and vibrant full-color style. The highly imaginative stories, loved by millions of young children, are even funnier with the new artwork. These are perfect first books, especially with the increased focus on the importance of reading to babies and toddlers, a cause that Mrs. Wells has been wholeheartedly promoting for several years with her The Most Important 20 Minutes of Your Day reading initiative.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Max doesn't want to eat his egg- "Bad Egg" he says. You can't have any strawberries until you finish your egg declares Ruby, his sometimes overbearing older sister. But she outsmarts herself and ends up eating the egg, much to Max's delight. Now the egg is "all gone," and Max can have some delicious strawberries. An amusing and all too true scene with bright new drawings by Wells. The series of Max board books includes Max's Bath, Max's Bedtime, Max's Birthday, Max's Breakfast, Max's First Word, Max's New Suit, Max's Ride and Max's Toys. 1998 (orig.

    Priceless story, but difficult to read aloud.

    Max doesn¿t like eggs, yet his big sister Ruby attempts to feed him one. Max want strawberries for breakfast, but Ruby insists he eat the egg first. Max tests his older sisters resolve by trying to get out of eating that egg: he cover it with a napkin, hides it on a chair, and finally climbs down from his chair, and hides under the table to avoid eating his breakfast. Ruby finds him, and demonstrates how good eggs are by taking a bite, ¿See, Max, said Ruby. It¿s a YUMMY, YUMMY EGG.¿ One bite turns into two, and eventually Ruby eats the entire egg. Max tosses a strawberry into the air, and with a big grin on his face declares, ¿ALL GONE¿. Ruby is exasperated. This cute story comes as a board book, and measures 7¿ x 7¿ x ¼¿. The text is very short; only ten pages long. Simply illustrated, yet the images are very expressive for easy comprehension. ¿MAX¿s Breakfast,¿ is a funny tale about a picky eater, but as in many of Ms. Wells books, it is awkward to read aloud, ¿Eat your egg, Max, said Max¿s sister, Ruby.¿ I have gotten to the point of discarding the last half of the sentences when reading her books, since they seems to flow better that way. Birth and up.
