The characters created by Rosemary Wells are most often darling animals who exhibit the characteristics of many young children and often find themselves in the same dilemmas. Max, Ruby and Morris are a few of my favorites. The pictures are as clever and endearing as the text. I would recommend Max's Dragon Shirt and Morris and the Disappearing Bag as surefire child pleasers.
