Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Glad tidings for Max fansthe bunny of board-book fame now stars in his first picture book. Sister Ruby has to drag Max up the steps, scrub his face with a washcloth and remind him to ``Spit, Max,'' as he brushes his teeth. It's Christmas Eve, and Max has a lot of questions about Santa Clausquestions Ruby answers with a ``Because!'' Not satisfied, the curious bunny sneaks downstairs to wait for the man in red. A bunny-angel at the top of the tree looks on as Santa himself answers some of Max's questions. But he, too, resorts to a ``Because!'' Max falls asleep. The next day, Ruby has queries of her own when she finds Max on the couch with a lap full of Christmas presents. Max's main answer? ``Because!'' Young readers will want to join resoundingly in that last lineone of the adult world's most ungratifying responses. Wells's pudgy bunnies and delightfully understated story will inspire year-round cravings for candy canes and early yearnings for yule logs. (3-7)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The charming story of Max and his desire to see Santa is now available in a large format board book. The text and illustrations are the same as in the earlier versions, although the cover is different, with Max wearing rather than holding his Santa hat. The colors on the cover are more muted than the original-the hat looks brown instead of red. Never mind, the story is terrific and kids, especially those with older siblings, will delight in Max's success and triumph over his sister Ruby. 1998 (orig.
