All Max wants to do is fly . . . and climb . . . and be a hero. But when he tries to do something heroic, his mom and dad prefer him to sit still and be quiet. When will Max get his chance to shine? Mighty Max captures that phase when many little boys want to be big and strong like superheroes. Elliot Kreloff's crayon illustrations give a winning personality to Max and his imaginary world.

Harriet Ziefert is the mother of two sons and now has three grandsons. She knows the superhero phase quite well.
Elliot Kreloff is an illustrator and designer of many books for children. He lives in New York City and Fire Island, New York.
Kindergarten-Grade 2—Maxwell is a lively little boy with an active imagination. Readers first meet him atop the monkey bars, balancing precariously. His father shouts out, "You're not SUPERMAN. So climb down and sit. You cannot be a bird without hurting yourself." The refrain follows: "Max sat. But not for long." Dad has to remind his son that Max is not King Kong or Evel Knievel. Finally, the child exclaims that he is Mighty Max. The adventure moves to the beach where the superhero rebuilds a wave-washed sand castle and continues to save the day. The collage and crayon illustrations are colorful and exuberant-an enthusiastic Max could have created them himself. This is a fine story to share with the many superheroes who frequent the library.—Linda M. Kenton, Pickleweed Public Library, San Rafael, CA
