K-Gr 3-- On his birthday, Maxwell receives the gift he has always wanted--a ``Monster Fun Kit''--complete with `` `fearsome mask, hideous claws, dastardly feet, plus lots of dangling eyeballs.' '' He spends the rest of his day scaring his family and friends. Catching a glimpse of himself in the mirror, he faints from shock at the sight. All ends happily as Mother Monster comes to his rescue and announces that she likes him best as plain Maxwell. The lively pen-and-watercolor illustrations reinforce the humor of the text and depict the outlandishness of the costume. Combining monsters, humor, and a birthday theme, Maxwell's Birthday will be a hit for both individual reading and story hours. --Cheryl Cufari, N.A. Walbran Elementary School, Oriskany, NY-
