Title: The Magic of Maxwell and His Tail
Author: Maureen Stolar Kanefield
Illustrator: Carlos Aón
Let's pull back the curtain and take a peek inside shall we?
So here is my take on this great little book in rhyme....yep, I'm turning into the Rhyming Reviewer and loving it..... :)
Look, there's Maxwell by his house.
Who's Maxwell? Why he's a little mouse.
What's the problem? What is wrong?
Oh my gosh....his tail's too long!!!
His friends at school all laugh and sneer,
They tease and gawk when Maxwell's near.
Poor Max is feeling so forlorn,
Rejected, sad ... his heart is torn.
Then one day a beam of light
Shines down on Max and sets things right.
His tail is magic, his tail's unique,
Max discovers he's NOT a freak!
Look out Max you tail's a wonder,
Creating magic without a blunder.
Extraordinary Maxwell smart,
His awesome tail's a work of art!
Maxwell's tail is quite a sight,
The things it does brings him delight.
Max's the envy of his school,
His friends now think that Max is cool.
P.S. The colourful illustrations are full of expression and fun. The message of just being yourself and celebrating your own uniqueness opens up a wonderful dialogue between you and your child. I highly recommend this book and know kids of all ages will enjoy reading it.
