What happens when a fearless kitten meets a duplicitous mouse?

Terrible things!

Some reviews for Max;

The New York Times - 'Max is an expressive huge-eyed black ball of kinetic kittenness who pops against each page’s bright, differently colored background. Kids will be tickled that they can distinguish a mouse and a monster while Max doesn’t, and — spoiler alert — the monster is more funny than scary.'

'will appeal to design-savvy parents'

The Sunday Times's - Children's book of the week - 'Elegantly designed - jokes that build - laugh out loud text'

The Huffington Post - 'Charming and funny'

The FT - 'One of those cherishable picture books designed to withstand repeat bedtime readings.'

The Independent - 'full of cat-appeal'

Publisher's Weekly - 'the punchy text and illustrations command attention'

Kirkus 'A cat-and-mouse game to be laughed at and reread.'


Books for Keeps - 'Ed Vere is the king of colour in contemporary picture books & Max the Brave is another showcase of delights.'


'Max at Night' will be available from Puffin Books in September
