Max and Ruby shop 'til they drop!
Max and Ruby are going to the store to buy Max a new pair of pants. But Max wants a green T-shirt emblazoned with a fierce, fire-breathing dragon. "No, Max", Ruby says, "Mother only gave me five dollars to buy pants". But there couldn't be any harm in Max just trying on the dragon shirt . . . could there?From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-- The engaging toddler rabbit is back, clad in tattered, paint-smeared, but dearly loved old blue pants. Draconian older sister Ruby drags him to the store for new ones, but Max, insistent as ever, only has eyes for a green shirt featuring a fire-breathing dragon. When Ruby spies first one dress and then another that she loves, the two become separated, and the search that follows is a true comedy of errors. Winsome but willful Max gets his heart's desire, and once again Ruby is deflated, giving young readers and listeners the vicarious satisfaction of besting an older sibling. The text reads well aloud, but is easy enough for beginning readers, who will soon notice that while Ruby gives her orders, Max's vocabulary is limited to one telling line repeated throughout: "Dragon shirt." Wells uses more background, more detail here than in previous "Max" stories, artfully capturing the hustle-bustle of a busy department store. Another gleeful romp with a pair of unforgettable hares.
