Slime dribblers. Fruit bats. Grape grenades. Gummy toads. No, this is not a witch's school lunch menu. These are the deliciously creative names of candy in the board book Max's Halloween. As they make their rounds, Fairy Princess Ruby demands to hold the entire loot. But Max, dressed as a Fiery Dragon, is determined to trick his older sister. This time even the neighbors help him out (I won't reveal how!). My daughters, ages 4 years 8 months and 2 years 10 months, have never met a Max book they didn't like. This one is no exception.

This is a short and simple story, but very cute and fun. Better than any of the other Max and Ruby Halloween books- the bookstore had this one, plus "Happy Halloween" and "Spooky Bunny Stories" (both of which are based on the TV show), and they lacked the charm of "Max's Halloween." This book has more text than many board books and would probably appeal to kids up to the age of 5 or so. Candy features heavily in the story and there are lots of drawings of the grape grenades, fruits bats, and other candies, which will delight lots of kids.

My grandchildren love Max & Ruby, so they love this book. It's very colorful with cute illustrations. The story is about how mischievous Max tricks Ruby (again). My grandson borrowed this book so much that I had to buy a second copy to keep in the book corner of the playroom!

My son loves Max, so I thought this would be cute to read to him in the weeks leading up to Halloween. There isn't much of a story here. Ruby's her typical self and holds all the candy from trick-or-treating so Max won't eat it all. Some characters sneak pieces of candy into Max's costume, but there's really nothing more to the story. My son gets a kick out of Max's shoe being full of candy. It's a really short story and in my opinion, it's not written very well.

Completely entertaining, never gets old. Max does what makes adults cringe but, kids relate to. As the mother of two sons, I thoroughly loved this book and can relate to Max. I was usually his sister Ruby while I growing up. I cheer Max now as a mom.
