Max Meow: Cat Crusader Book 1 (Hardcover)
My 7 year old son, who is a member of the Dog Man legion, ate this cat-tastic graphic novel up. He enjoyed the humor and has taken to yelling "Meowza!" around the house on a regular basis. As a parent, I really enjoyed seeing themes of forgiveness and friendship throughout. My favorite scene was a moment where a character corrects her two rambunctious children with a gentle admonishment and a reminder that "even heroes make mistakes."— Leslie
