To celebrate 40 years of Max and Ruby, we are publishing MAX'S TOYS in a new lap-sized board book format!

Max has five balloons and six cars and seven trucks, but all he wants is Ruby's doll, Emily. And Max almost always gets what he wants.

Published forty years ago, Max's Toys set a new standard in board books. With few words and hilarious illustrations, Rosemary Wells tells a simple story that is just right for a very first book. Showcased in lap-sized board book format, this classic title will delight a new generation.

About the Author

Rosemary Wells is the author of more than one hundred books for children, many of which feature the popular bunnies Max and Ruby, who star in their own show on Nick, Jr. "Simple incidents from childhood are universal," Wells says. "The dynamics between older and younger siblings are common to all families." She is a tireless advocate for literacy and for preschool education, and travels widely speaking on those topics. She lives in Connecticut.
