MAX ATTACKS, by Kathi Appelt and Penelope Dullaghan, Atheneum/Caitlyn Dlouhy Books, June 11, 2019, Hardcover, $17.99 (ages 4-8)
It’s Max’s nature to attack. That’s what cats do. At least that’s what Max does. From fish and birds to lizards and socks, nothing is safe from Max’s pouncing. But even with his mighty pounce, will Max be able to catch anything?
Max Attacks immediately caught my daughter’s eye. Bright, bold illustrations and fun rhythmical text makes it inviting and fun. My daughter eagerly flipped the pages, anxious to discover what would happen next. Max Attacks is fun to read aloud, and the illustrations truly bring out Max’s character.
Five-year-old’s review: “Wow! That’s some book about Max. He’s such a naughty kitten.”
