Description from Publisher:
Max is done being brave, and now it’s time to sleep—all he has to do is say good night. But something’s wrong! When Max goes to say good night to the moon, it’s nowhere to be found. Unable to sleep without finishing his nighttime ritual, Max embarks on a journey to find the moon and wish it a good night.

With the same loveable character and bright, graphic illustrations as the New York Times bestseller, Max the Brave, Max at Night is sure to delight young readers and adults alike.

My Rating & Review:
I had previously seen the book "Max the Brave" by Ed Vere, but hadn't had the chance to read it. Having a son named Max, I was excited to check out this latest "Max" book and, having read it, will be making a point to get my hands on "Max the Brave"!

This book, Max at Night, is a great bedtime book, with Max the cat getting ready for bed and then saying "Goodnight" to the things around him. When he can't find the moon, he goes in search of it so that he can say goodnight to it, too. The story is simple, but elegantly so. Not too short and not too long!

The illustrations are cute and fun, and my son (3.5) enjoyed trying to find the moon. The moon talking to Max near the end is a nice touch, especially when it tells him that he can always hear him.

I received a hardcover ARC from the publisher for an honest, unbiased review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is my 100% own.
