The Board Book that is definitely not Boring! 28 April 2000
By Hallie Collins Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
Rosemary Wells has done it again! Max's New Suit playfully explores a simple concept that is familiar to toddlers and their grown ups. Combining a simple text with her extremely expressive illustrations, Ms Wells tells the story of brother and sister team, Max and Ruby. In this amusing tale, Max must get dressed in his new suit (which he hates!) to attend Ruby's tea party. Despite Ruby's help, the precocious Max wants to do it himself and this is where the story takes a delightful twist.My 6-month old Max loves the Max books and recognizes the Max and Ruby characters. The illustrations and text are clear and colorful while complimenting each other. This book holds his attention during our frequent readings and, I believe, helps to foster his sense of humor and fun. Max's New Suit will keep both child and reader entertained for reading after reading! It is an essential book for every baby's library (or, as Ms Wells might say, every Bunny's library).

Max's new Suit 14 Feb 2010
By Dr Doran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
The first editions were absolutely wonderful. Unfortunately, the illustrations in later editions are not nearly as whimsical and do not as well capture how a toddler views the world.

PRETTY CUTE 3 Jun 2009

Format: Board book Verified Purchase
My son, who is 3 yrs old, loves the "Max & Ruby" tv show. He's not as interested in "Max's New Suit," even though it's pretty cute (book is prob better for a younger child). His favorite books are:
"Dragon Shirt"
"Bunny Cakes"
"Bunny Party"
"Max Cleans Up"
"Max's Toys"
