Overview

Max at Night by Ed Vere

The companion to the New York Times and USA Today bestseller Max the Brave!

Max is done being brave, and now it's time to sleep—all he has to do is say good night. But something's wrong! When Max goes to say good night to the moon, it's nowhere to be found. Unable to sleep without finishing his nighttime ritual, Max embarks on a journey to find the moon and wish it a good night.

Praise for Max the Brave:
"A cat-and-mouse game to be laughed at and reread." —Kirkus
"Full of playful humor...enhanced by the humorous text, character expressions, and a not-scary monster to boot. VERDICT Highly recommended." — School Library Journal
"Both the punchy text and illustrations command attention, and plenty of readers will get a kick out of feeling superior to Max" —Publishers Weekly

I had previously seen the book "Max the Brave" by Ed Vere, but hadn't had the chance to read it. Having a son named Max, I was excited to check out this latest "Max" book and, having read it, will be making a point to get my hands on "Max the Brave"! This book, Max at Night, is a great bedtime book, with Max the cat getting ready for bed and then saying "Goodnight" to the things around him. When he can't find the moon, he goes in search of it so that he can say goodnight to it, too. The story is simple, but elegantly so. Not too short and not too long! The illustrations are cute and fun, and my son (3.5) enjoyed trying to find the moon. The moon talking to Max near the end is a nice touch, especially when it tells him that he can always hear him. I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This is no way influenced my review. My opinion is my own.

Max is one of the cutest cat books I have come across in a while! This is the perfect book to read to your child and teach them to read. Then maybe one night, they will read it to you! I also liked the message that the moon relayed in the book, I won't give it away, but I thought it was a nice touch. The illustrations are colorful with dark/warm colors to lull your child to sleep. Children: I believe this book will be loved by both little girls and boys. The book recommends 3 and up, but you could start to read this to your child as soon as you wanted, the more reading the better! Parents: I think the story is sweet and something that the parent will also enjoy. Also, there is an activity kit for a day activity, where you could see how much of the story they remember and expand on their thoughts about the book. As for me, I don't have children, but I do enjoy reading books like this especially after very emotional reads! I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars! Thank you to Ed Vere, Sourcebooks, and JabberwockyKids for a copy of this book for my honest review and for this blog tour!

Max the cat was my first children's book to review. Back on July 23, 2015 I reviewed Max the Brave. It was totally adorable and it came with a cape, a decal for my window and a bookmark, if I recall correctly. I read it to my Ewoks and they couldn't stop laughing. When I saw Ed Vere was coming out with Max at Night, I couldn't let it get away from me. These books are wonderful for me-... er, for the kids. Yeah, wonderful for the kids, is what I meant! Also, get in on this amazing book giveaway! In this adventure, Max is performing a ritual for bed time. As with any child, he has a way that takes him out of the way of bed. He has to say good night to everything, but one is elusive. So he goes out, looking high and low for something/someone, just to say "Good night." Just like the first book, I enjoyed reading Max at Night. The illustrations are so bold and appealing to the eye. I'm like a kid in that sense when it comes to children's books. The brighter the better- depending on the story. I think I'm a true Vere fan, and will always seek out his Max the cat books. Read it to your little one(s)- you'll see! On to the next read!Cheers!? *For review and giveaway: http://bit.ly/2cT7dlM **Book provided by Source Jabberwocky, for an honest review.

I am so happy that Max is back in another book! I really liked his first book Max the Brave, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on Max at Night to see what this cute little cat is up to! In this installment our little black cat is tired, but before he can go to bed he needs to say goodnight. However, before he can go to bed, he needs to say good night. So he starts saying good night to everything - a box, a fish, etc...but when he gets the moon he can't find it! Poor Max, he can't go to bed until he tells the moon good night, so he goes off in search for it. Like the previous book, the artwork in this book is simple. Most pages consist of one bright and mostly solid color with simple art work to depict whatever it is Max is doing in the story at the time. Yet, despite its simplicity, it works. And Max is just too cute! The story line is okay. It isn't spectacular. However, it is still a great bedtime read. We go through the getting ready for bed motions with Max and the story is, over all, a calm one. So it is a good one to help littles settle down to sleep. I look forward to many more of Max's adventures. He is a cute cat and easy to love! Definitely a staple character for my house!

Max (a cat) is tired and ready for bed, but he wants to say goodnight first. After saying goodnight to a few items in the house, he says goodnight to the moon. But he cannot see the moon! Worried that the moon is missing, he goes in search of it. He asks everyone he meets along the way if they know where the moon is, and he continues going higher and higher trying to get a better view. This book is playful and fun. It reminded me of Are You My Mother? and Bears in the Night (Berenstain Bears) because of the repeated question and the retracing his steps at the end. The illustrations are simple yet colorful. Max is adorable with his big yellow eyes. Young children ages 2-4 will delight in this bedtime story, and parents won't mind reading it over and over again. The prose uses simple words as well, so this would make a good early reader (level 3). I will have to have my 6 year old son read it soon. He loves cats, so this will be good one for him. http://www.momsradius.com/2016/09/blog-tour-max-at-night.html
