Children's Literature (CLCD) - Marilyn Courtot

"Young readers who pick this book up may realize that it is part of a series about Max and his life. Max has several friends and they generally represent kids in a variety of home life situations. The other interesting fact is that Max is African-American, but you only know that from looking at the pictures. Zoe is one of Max’s friends and he has been invited to dinner at her house. She lives with her grandparents who appear to be quite youthful in the illustrations. They enjoy a cookout with hotdogs from the grill, baked beans, and fresh juicy watermelon filled with seeds. The two friends enjoy playing checkers and the family obviously encourages Zoe to have her friends visit. It is a perfectly normal family situation for many kids in this country, and this story should help them feel quite comfortable. The stylized illustrations are generally pleasing except when they show the kids or adults smiling. The big white teeth in their mouths seem to be over emphasized and are not attractive. A Red Level book in the “Read-it! Readers” series" - Children's Literature (CLCD)
