“Like the first Max story, the cartoon cover is irresistible and the comical illustrations spice up the clever story. As silly and funny as the Marx Brothers movie of the same title.”
“Urbanovic creates a slapstick delight with her wildly expressive characters and expertly conveyed physical comedy. Like its best-selling predecessor, this is sure to be a read-aloud hit.”
“Children will laugh out loud at the antics in this story.”
-School Library Journal
“Genuinely funny. Urbanovic’s vibrant watercolor and pencil illustrations are humorous and expressive. Adults looking for a readaloud choice that will really ‘quack up’ their audience will find this title just ducky.”
