If you or someone in your family meets someone new it can be a bit scary at first. Well this book called “Max and Dax Meet” is similar to that. For Max is nervous to meet his Aunt new member of the family. If you introduce the person or animals to the person or animal and see how things go.

Things may just turn out well for them and the animal or people being introduced. Who to say. In this book See what happen when Max meets Dax? Will they get along? Dax seem like he want to get to know Max but will it work out?

The pictures are done well. I really like that. The story is understandable. It easy to read. The pictures kind of tell the story and pleasant to look at. Good for young readers and children. It even got some lesson in the book about children and animals.

Book Review: Gertrude an Toby Meet the Wolf

Book Title: Gertrude an Toby Meet the Wolf

This story is sweet. I reminds me of the story “The Boy who Cried Wolf” when Gertrude and Toby see a little boy. The boy say he see a wolf. If you know that fairy tale story. The moral of the story you think this story is going be somewhat like that.

It also features another story or fairy Tale which is called “The Three Little Pigs”. The author does wonderful with mixing it a bit with the two starting with “The boy who Cried Wolf” scenes and then somewhat changed it to add the “The Three Little Pigs” scenes. The ending is done cute as well.

My favorite is the artwork that is done. The pictures are drawn well. I really like that. They look like some took the time to draw the scene and the the wording was put together after. Who will win their fishing contest?
