Editorial Reviews


Praise for Max and Ruby's Treasure Hunt by Rosemary Wells

"Packed with interactive fun...this is Wells at her best."—Booklist, starred review

“An exuberant return adventure for Max and reading will not be enough.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The flaps–perfect for little hands to lift –are larger versions of the envelopes containing the rhymes, and more clues are given on the envelope seals. This latest Max and Ruby adventure has all the charm one expects from Wells.”—School Library Journal

More About the Author

Born in New York City, Rosemary Wells grew up in a house "filled with books, dogs, and nineteenth-century music." Her childhood years were spent between her parents' home near Red Bank, New Jersey, and her grandmother's rambling stucco house on the Jersey Shore. Most of her sentimental memories, both good and bad, stem from that place and time. Her mother was a dancer in the Russian Ballet, and her father a playwright and actor. Mrs. Wells says, "Both my parents flooded me with books and stories. My grandmother took me on special trips to the theater and museums in New York. "Rosemary Wells's career as an author and illustrator spans more than 30 years and 60 books. She has won numerous awards, and has given readers such unforgettable characters as Max and Ruby, Noisy Nora, and Yoko. She has also given Mother Goose new life in two enormous, definitive editions, published by Candlewick. Wells wrote and illustrated Unfortunately Harriet, her first book with Dial, in 1972. One year later she wrote the popular Noisy Nora. "The children and our home life have inspired, in part, many of my books. Our West Highland white terrier, Angus, had the shape and expressions to become Benjamin and Tulip, Timothy, and all the other animals I have made up for my stories." Her daughters Victoria and Beezoo were constant inspirations, especially for the now famous "Max" board book series. "Simple incidents from childhood are universal," Wells says. "The dynamics between older and younger siblings are common to all families."But not all of Wells' ideas come from within the family circle. Many times when speaking, Mrs. Wells is asked where her ideas come from. She usually answers, "It's a writer's job to have ideas." Sometimes an idea comes from something she reads or hears about, as in the case of her recent book, Mary on Horseback, a story based on the life of Mary Breckenridge, who founded the Frontier Nursing Service. Timothy Goes to School was based on an incident in which her daughter was teased for wearing the wrong clothes to a Christmas concert. Her dogs, west highland terriers, Lucy and Snowy, work their way into her drawings in expression and body position. She admits, "I put into my books all of the things I remember. I am an accomplished eavesdropper in restaurants, trains, and gatherings of any kind. These remembrances are jumbled up and changed because fiction is always more palatable than truth. Memories become more true as they are honed and whittled into characters and stories."

Format: Hardcover
Ruby thought that it would be a great idea to get out the tea set and have a picnic. "Let's have a party!" she exclaimed. Her little brother, Max, and her best friend, Louise, along with her little sister, Lily, help her spread a little orange-colored cloth on the ground. Even Dagmar, Lily's doll, was going to have a spot of tea. Just as Louise pretended to pour a cup ... "CRASH! BANG!" Oh, my! It was not time for a tea party, but time to run for the house. Quick, quick, quick like a bunny they ran to escape the rain. It was really no fun being stuck in the house when they could be having a tea party picnic. "Rain rain, go away!" exclaimed Ruby. "Come again another day!" echoed Louise.

It wasn't another day and they wanted to play. Grandma knew exactly what to do and that was to have a treasure hunt. "There are seven clues," she explained, "hidden in seven places in the house." Following those clues one by one would lead them to a treasure! Grandma began with a rhyme that would lead them to the first clue. Louise quickly guessed the answer and they ran to Max's sneaker under the chair and "inside was the first clue." Max and Lily couldn't read so Ruby read it to them: "I'm a little _____, short and stout. Tip me over and pour me out!" There were six more clues. Where would they lead them and what would that treasure be?

This Max and Ruby story is a wonderful, interactive tale young children will love. Each of the seven clues Grandma has for them is in the form of a "Lift-the-Flap" note that is perfect for little hands. Although little children, like Max and Lily, will be unable to read them, most will be able to guess the answers. Upstairs and downstairs the bunnies make their way around the house finding the envelopes.

My pre-K class loved looking for the treasure clues and thinking about where to look for the next clue. It kept the class engaged and helped with learning nursery rhymes.
