As you know, I really love children's books. Not only do I like to read them to find books to buy my goddaughter, but I personally enjoy them myself. I believe children's books aren't just for children. They can bring joy to adults, too.
When the lovely folks over at Sourcebooks contacted me about participating in a blog tour for Ed Vere's Max at Night, I jumped at the opportunity. I really enjoyed the first book in this children's series (Max the Brave), and I may have liked this one even more.
Max at Night (Max)
by Ed Vere
Published September 1, 2016
This is Max. Max is very sleepy. It's way past Max's bedtime. Max has drunk his milk. Max has brushed his teeth. Max has cleaned behind his ears. Now Max just needs to say goodnight...
Max is tired and all ready for bed, but when he can't find the moon to say goodnight to, he sets out to find it. But that's not as easy as Max had hoped...
Witty and heart-warming, this stylish and beautifully illustrated book is the perfect bedtime read.
I'm going to keep this short and to the point: you need this for your child's library. As a grown human, this book made me chuckle, so I know a young reader would be entertained by it, too. It's adorable and sweet, and the illustrations are simple yet delightful and eye-catching. The bright color scheme is perfect for the playful vibe of the storyline. Check out the images below for a better idea of what I mean:
Now for the fun part: Enter for a chance to win an original sketch by author and illustrator Ed Vere and a copy of Max at Night!
I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. Check out the Max at Night landing page for even more info. I'm also including some author links for you to visit, if you are so inclined:
