Children’s Book Committee – December Pick
Weekends with Max and His Dad
by Linda Urban, illustrated by Katie Kath
(HMH Books for Young Readers, 2016)
Third grader Max has humorous neighborhood adventures staying with his recently divorced father in his new apartment. Amusing black-and-white illustrations.
Our Young Reviewer says:
I really liked this book; Max and his Dad have such a cool relationship, like me and my Dad. They have cool spy names that were really funny like “Agent Pepperoni” and “Agent Cheese.” I liked that that they went on secret missions, and I also like that Max was able to be honest with his Dad about not liking football. Even he thought would be mad, which made Max nervous, he was wasn’t, he was actually happy Max told him. I think they are a fun team and their adventures are awesome.
