Max the Brave!
Max is a cat. Max is a brave little cat. Max is a fierce, brave little cat, the very sort of fierce, brave little cat that can definitely track down and catch a mouse. There’s only one problem: Max doesn’t know what a mouse is…
Max the Brave is a cute story told in a tremendously endearing style, with generous dollops of humour and surprise as Max discovers various animals in his singular mission to track down the infamous mouse.
The language is straightforward enough, with perhaps one turn of phrase (‘not all it’s cracked up to be’) that may require some explaining to a young child, but this is hardly a hindrance. The typeface used is also nice and clear – a good feature given the recent trend of having florid loop-de-loop writing in kids’ books, which may be very handsome but isn’t necessarily the best option for a child who’s just getting to grips with reading.
Max the Brave is a charming story about an adventurous little cat whose curiosity gets him in a bit of hot water, and I would certainly recommend giving it a read.
The World Famous Cheese Shop Break-in!
Daddypops says it will be as easy as 123 to get into the Cheese Shop... First he tells his children to just walk through the door and get the cheese… But THAT doesn’t work. Then he makes a catapult and fires them into the shop…. THAT doesn’t work either. Finally Daddypops has his most brilliant idea ever. He gets a pickaxe, a shovel and a bucket and tells the children what to do. They will dig a tunnel to the Cheese Shop, and break through to the shop floor at dead of night. What could go wrong??

With only an orphaned wolf cub for company, Torak must keep his promise to find the Mountain.
