Rosemary Wells, Max Can Read

From beloved author-illustrator Rosemary Wells comes a brand-new Max & Ruby story about Max surprising Grandma and Ruby when he finds a way to read the instruction book when no one else can!

 

When the mail carrier brings a big package from Uncle Gyorgy in Bulgaria to the house, Max turns to his Reading Is Fun book to help understand the instructions. But the book doesn't help one bit. And Ruby is too busy. Grandma reserves a Bulgarian dictionary at the library, but the interlibrary loan will take weeks. It's Max to the rescue in this clever and satisfying story.

 

Max and Ruby have their own TV show on Nick Jr.!

 

Rosemary Wells’ career as an author and illustrator spans more than 40 years and 120 books. She has won numerous awards, and she has given readers such unforgettable characters as Max and Ruby, Noisy Nora, and Yoko. She has also given Mother Goose new life in two definitive editions and created an unforgettable world for grown-ups and kids alike in Voyage to the Bunny Planet. Her recent book, Hand in Hand, is meant to give a lift to Parents at Risk, who rarely see poetry or beautiful pictures.
 
Rosemary Wells was born in New York City and raised on the New Jersey shore. She grew up in a home that was always filled with books, dogs, classical music, and other things her parents held in great esteem.

At two years old Rosemary began to draw. When she was not outdoors, she was always drawing. At nineteen, she attended Boston Museum School. Rosemary worked seven years in publishing before her first book was published in 1968, an illustrated edition of Gilbert and Sullivan’s A Song to Sing, O!

Speaking about her youth, Rosemary recalls, “New Jersey was farm country, and I spent much of my time outdoors, running around the woods behind our house and playing baseball with the neighbors’ kids. I spent a lot of time with animals, horses, and dogs. My grandmother took me on special trips to the theater and museums in New York City. I was born during a golden age of childhood in our country’s history. And I was lucky because my parents were happy and they supported all that I wanted to do. They had both been in the theater and understood the arts from the inside. We had a houseful of wonderful books. Reading stories aloud was as much a part of my childhood as the air I breathed.”
