A truly beautiful, charming book. Newly released from a set of unpublished dummy pages by the celebrated illustrators Alice and Martin Provenson, it’s a character sketch of the farm cat Max, a singleton kitten who grows up to taunt other cats, smile at the horse, torment the dog, chase the chickens, and who LOVES to help make the bed. The ink and watercolor pictures are riotous, funny, and display Max in all his moods, and his lovely farm in all its glories of trees and grasses and the evening sky…when Max’s “real life” begins. The final image brought a tear of wonder to this reader’s eye, evoking my own rambunctious, complicated, serious and mischievous rural tabby cat. I cherish this little book… (lisätietoja)

A great example of dedication to a dream and perseverance. Try, try, again, design and redesign. A good choice for the aspiring inventor in your life.

At first I did not like this book, it seemed like it looked down on poor people. But I think it’s just matter of fact. I don’t generally see representation of families who live this way, with yards that are not sterile and empty.

The book goes over what can be found in different areas, it can be used to teach geography concepts, such as landforms, climate, and natural resources. Students can use the illustrations in the book to identify different types of landscapes and habitats and in class, we could discuss how these environments affect the way people live and work. This would be good for ages 2nd- 3rd grade.
