Description


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

When Max meets Bird, Max thinks he'd like to be friends with Bird. He would also like to chase Bird and maybe eat him as a tasty snack. But that's not what friendship is all about…is it?

With the same loveable character and bright, graphic illustrations as Max the Brave, Max and Bird is sure to delight young readers and adults alike.

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

Praise For…


"[Max] and Bird make a winning duo by book's end. Real warmth followed by a rush of triumph helps make this book stand out." — Kirkus Reviews

"Vere’s pared-down cartooning keeps the focus on this developing friendship (the two friends, both inky black with huge white eyes, appear against brightly colored, mostly empty backgrounds), and his droll narration...provides lots of laughs along the way." — Publishers Weekly

"The story line is humorous and engaging for a young audience. Children will relate to Max’s and Bird’s attempts to achieve something they have seen but never tried themselves. This book is a fun read about forming meaningful friendships and learning from others." — School Library Journal
