This week we’re celebrating MAX THE BRAVE, a picture book from author illustrator Ed Vere about a fearless cat in search of a mouse to chase. But first he needs to figure out what a mouse looks like!
The beauty of a diorama is that you get to experience the story in 3D. Plus, a peephole makes it feel like the whole thing is a hidden secret, so that’s a bonus too!
Meet Max. He’s a cat. A sweet cat. A sweet cat that sometimes gets dressed in bows. A sweet cat that sometimes gets dressed in bows who does not like that. And that’s because Max is fearless and a mice-catcher.
Ed Vere, author illustrator most recently of Max the Brave, which is published by Sourcebooks, stops by to talk about storytelling with a jazz trio, a stubborn and tenacious cat, and how it’s all in the eyes.
Singer songwriter Emily Arrow (Em is for Music) has created a wonderful song adaptation of Ed Vere’s MAX THE BRAVE. We can’t stop singing along and we can’t wait to hear your voices, too!
