Watch your ankles and find out in this clever, rhyming picture book about a very naughty kitty cat.Max is a cat. He attacks. From socks to strings to many a fish, attacking, for Max, is most de-lish. But how many of these things can he actually catch? Well, let’s just say it’s no even match.
Max… Attacks – My Book Review
From the very first page, Max sounds like a real-life cat I know that is aptly called Wayne the Pain. Max is a special cat who is full of curiosity and life. Thankfully, curiosity does not kill Max nor the fishes.
Max… Attacks is a delightful children’s book that shows a day in the life of Max told in verse. From his romps with socks to blinds to trying to eat, and play with the fishes Max has a day full of curious adventures.
The illustrations and story complement each other perfectly. This book would be great for read-along or even a read-aloud book.
