BOOK REVIEW

MAX by Bob Graham
by Bob Graham, illustrated by Bob Graham
CHILDREN'S
Released: Aug. 1, 2000

"The rest of the text has a tender quality that can't be overlooked, and the artwork alone—cartoony watercolors of saturated color, broken into numerous panels—will keep young eyes wholly absorbed. (Picture book. 4-7)"
No one will accuse Graham (Benny, 1999, etc.) of excessive subtlety in this story of meeting life's challenges when you are good and ready. Read full book review >
