Description


A never-before-published original work from renowned children's book duo Alice and Martin Provensen, which invites into the mystery that is Max the cat

In this picture book from
the Provensens' archives, the unforgettable Max, who appears in many of the Provensens' picture books, takes center stage.
Wherever Max goes, mischief is sure to follow He spends his days teasing, playing hide-and-seek, and prowling the barnyard. He's also keenly intelligent and independent, with his own private life that
begins at night. An affectionate portrait of a pet who's both friend and hunter,
from a luminary author-illustrator pair of American children's literature.

Taking inspiration from their own life at Maple
Hill Farm in Dutchess County, New York, great American illustrators Alice and
Martin Provensen shared the changing seasons that give rhythm to life in the
country in A Year at Maple Hill Farm and the lovable antics of their
barnyard animals in Our Animal Friends at Maple Hill Farm. This picture
book will include backmatter from Karen Provensen, with more information of Max, the real-life cat
who lived on Maple Hill Farm, and her parents' lasting legacy.
