Max the Brave

Max the Brave

Summary

Max the Brave is a brilliant new picture book from Ed Vere.

This is Max. Max the Brave, Max the Fearless, Max the Mouse-catcher...

But, in order to be a Mouse-catcher, Max needs to know what a mouse is, so off he goes to find out.

This hilarious new picture book from the phenomenally-talented Ed Vere introduces a new and lovable character, with Ed's trademark bold illustrations and clever story.
