Max the Brave (Ed Vere)

This is a cute story that kids will find silly because the cat wants to chase mice, only he doesn't exactly know what a mouse is. The illustrations amaze me because they are very simple yet very effective. He captures emotions on the animals' faces perfectly.

Could be a could intro for a discussion on courage or animal instincts.

Goodreads 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. Other Ed Vere titles to look out for: Banana; Bedtime for Monsters; Mr. Big; The Getaway Ed Vere studied fine art at Camberwell College of Art and has been writing and illustrating children's books since 1999.
