About this title


Ruby's friend Louise is coming over to play, and she's bringing her Deluxe Beauty Kit. Inside the kit is everything the two of them will need to make Max gorgeous, including instant stick-on nails, wigs, and makeup. But Max has no intention of sitting pretty: he'd much rather experiment with some beauty tricks of his own. The bunny siblings have never looked better than in this sweet and funny story by one of today's most popular children's book creators, about whom Kirkus Reviews says, "Wells must have a secret key not only to the heart of toddlerhood but to the very core of sibling relationships."


Rosemary Wells's adorable bunny siblings Max and Ruby are back—-this time with their friend Louise and her Deluxe Beauty Kit complete with wigs, makeup, and instant stick-on nails. Max, as it turns out, is the first customer-victim at the beauty shop. He gets nailed and wigged and moussed and made up until he actually looks a little like Tammy Faye. But what's this? The beauty shop hot line is ringing, and the First Lady needs a shampoo and set! The Queen wants a manicure! As Louise and Ruby distract themselves with just-pretend celebrities, Max decides to make his own fashion statement, with a little help from "Rock-around-the-Clock Hair Color." Next thing you know he is Lizard Green. And Sunflower Yellow. And Ocean Blue. In the end, not even Grandma is safe from Louise's beauty bag! Children who are fascinated by "beauty-enhancing" accoutrements will giggle at the sight of bunny makeovers in this slight but cute Max and Ruby book. (Ages 4 and older) --Karin Snelson
