Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Bald-headed Max and his porcine pal, Pinky, are back in another funny escapade. Determined to give the barn a new look, they paint the building and, unwittingly, their clothing, brick red, while various animals offer snide remarks ("You missed a spot"). The next morning, the friends are shocked to discover that the barn is pink, and spend the day repainting. They try to remain awake that night to catch the perpetrator, but end up snoozing, and the next day, the barn has black stripes. When a search fails to turn up anything, the pair concocts an elaborate (and hilarious) alarm scheme involving a duck, string, a bowling ball, and more. That night, the warning system awakens Max, but Pinky is nowhere to be seen. Max's trip to the barn reveals his friend's whereabouts as well as the identity of the clandestine culprit. The pen-and-ink cartoons digitally painted in saturated colors are filled with visual jokes and pair well with the brief text. Readers will enjoy watching this duo solve their mystery, and those familiar with Best Buds (Knopf, 2007) will understand the inspiration for the barn's final design (marshmallows). A fun read.—Marianne Saccardi, formerly at Norwalk Community College, CT

This is the third book in the Max and Pinky series I've purchased from Amazon for my kids. I have to admit, I breathe a sigh of relief when they pull one of the Max and Pinky books out. They are hilarious, even for us grownups. We bought the first book when they were 3 and they still enjoy them now that they're 5. The story and illustrations are great. In this book, my kids think the funniest part is the groundhog that keeps getting painted, while Max and Pinky are painting the barn.
All I can say is pick all three books up. It's a good investment and you and your kids will never grow tired of reading them.
Oh and why does Max get stuck in something in every book?!

Maxwell Eaton III's THE MYSTERY provides another adventure story of Max, a little roundheaded boy, and his pig Pinky, best buddies seeking adventure. Here the two have painted the barn a classic shade of red - but the next morning, it's turned pink. Another coat and another morning reveal it to be plaid. What's happening? A sweet story of two zany characters evolves.
