MISTER MAX: THE BOOK OF KINGS
by Cynthia Voigt, illustrated by Iacopo Bruno
“Readers who have come to enjoy the series’ well-drawn characters and its measured pace will find this a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. […] A rewarding adventure story for fans of Mister Max.” —Booklist
In THE BOOK OF SECRETS, Cynthia Voigt first introduced readers to the mysterious, quirky, and action-driven world of Mister Max, in which Max’s parents went missing leaving only a cryptic note behind. In the second book, THE BOOK OF LOST THINGS, Max uncovered crucial information in a conspiracy that spanned an ocean about the mystery of their abduction.
Now in THE BOOK OF KINGS (Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers | On Sale September 8, 2015 | Ages 8-2), the riveting final installment in the critically acclaimed trilogy by Newbery Medal winning author Cynthia Voigt, Mister Max stops solving other people’s problems and decides to solve his own: the time has come for Max to rescue his parents. Perfect for fans of Blue Balliet and Elaine Broach, THE BOOK OF KINGS is a quintessential middle grade mystery-adventure story, and includes striking full-page illustrations by Iacopo Bruno.
