Title: Max at Night
By: Ed Vere
Release Date: September 1, 2016

Goodreads Summary: 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.
Review: This children’s book tells the story of Max, a cat who must tell the Moon goodnight before he goes to bed.
I thought this book was adorable! I am definitely a cat person, and this story just made me smile the entire time I was reading it. The story is simple, but is one that children will love.
I loved how Max goes through quite a journey just to tell the Moon goodnight. My favorite line is when Max tells his box goodnight (cats and their boxes!).
Vere has conveyed his words with simple, yet powerful illustrations. Though the lines are smooth and effortless, they are very will-paired with the story. It is also very well-done how Max is juxtaposed with his surroundings on his journey.
Overall, Max at Night is a great read! I believe that children and their families everywhere will appreciate Max’s story and Vere’s artistry. I cannot wait to share this story with my nephews, and even my own kids one day!
