Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Milo finds his older brother, Max, at a loss for words. Max is upset with his writing attempts, evidenced by the huge pile of crumpled paper. After Milo finds a way to amuse himself with Max’s paper pile, Milo figures out that his older brother is struggling to write a note to Molly. Milo shares different ideas and extraordinary plans to help Max impress Molly and win her heart. Max is overwhelmed with Milo’s efforts and gives up any further attempts of note writing. Relentless, Milo has another idea that he pursues on his own. The following day, Milo sits at the same table as Molly during lunch. Max’s plan is revealed and readers learn how Max helps Milo initiate communication with his crush, Molly. The story is in a graphic novel format using speech bubbles and illustrations to move the plot. Young readers may be amused with this adventure of the beaver brothers, Max and Milo, where the younger brother seems to have an upper hand in problem solving. Check out the earlier book Max and Milo: Go to Sleep. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung; Ages 4 to 8.

PreS-Gr 2—Those fabulous beaver brothers are back in a delightful adventure that concerns matters of the heart. Max has a crush on Molly, but he doesn't know how to put his feelings into words. He tries and tries to write her a love letter and is about to give up when Milo walks into the room and sees the pile of balled-up paper. His advice is simple: "Start by giving her something FANTASTIC!" How else will he win Molly's love? And the ideas flow. The goofy cartoon-style illustrations, many of them over-the-top, are rendered digitally in bright colors and incorporate large-print text in bubbles. In this laugh-out-loud picture book, the boys learn that often, when it comes to expressing love, less is more.—Janene Corbin, Rosebank Elementary School, Nashville, TN
