Max's Toys

by Rosemary Wells

Published by Dial, 1998
10 pages

Ages 1 - 3

The eight volumes in the Max series, first published between 1979 and1985, were among the first original board books produced especially with toddlers in mind. With just a few well-chosen words and brilliant strokes of the paint brush, Wells managed to create a series of engaging stories centering on a stubborn little rabbit named Max and his bossy older sister, Ruby. All eight volumes have now been reissued in a larger size (7 x 7") with completely new illustrations that maintain the spirit of the originals. In addition, Wells has made minor changes to improve some of the texts, all in the interest of simplicity. But in the face of these changes, Max and Ruby's characters and their sibling struggles remain the same, and they will continue to delight a new generation of children.
