Max Makes A Million
Max's dream is to live in Paris and be a poet - even though no one will buy his poems, and he is penniless. But living in New York City isn't so bad. Where else could he have friends like Bruno, who paints invisible pictures, or Marcello, who builds upside-down houses? Max Makes a Million is a fun, jazzy tale filled with Maira Kalman's signature bright and imaginative illustrations. Children will delight in the rhythm and sound of her poetic sentences read out loud, and root for Max the dog as he follows his big city dreams.
Maira Kalman is an illustrator, author, and designer. Ms. Kalman's twelve children's books include Max Makes a Million, Stay Up Late, Swami on Rye, and What Pete Ate.
