About this deal

What I feel slightly less sure about is how many will appreciate the use of Cockney rhyming slang, especially if this is the first time they’ve come across it, so this reinforces my belief that the story will probably be best appreciated if an adult is on hand to explain it more clearly. It could end up being a useful teaching tool to explore these topics with your children as Max faces and deals with all these various issues throughout the course of the book. A chase through the market ensues and he falls foul of the Crayfish twins and their suit gets ruined. I think that the excellent illustrations very evocatively capture the scenes being described and I’m sure children will enjoy discovering the ‘magic’ of seeing the images of the top-hat change as they flip through the lower right-hand corners of the pages! Tom is joined by his friends and they are on a mission to save Max’s Dad’s market stall from the characters of the evil Crayfish Twins.

The larger text size within was an interesting change and then to learn it was to make the book dyslexia friendly was a great idea. With the help of his friends and his trusty dog Lucky, Max is going to give The Greatest Show on Earth everything he's got . My daughters thoughts: The book is good because max magic is really good and chapter 8 the mind-reading mayhem. Max Magic follows a boy named Max who loves magic and impressing all his family and friends with his tricks but he has some bullies who aren't so impressed both at school and at his dads market stall so he decides he needs to work out how to get them off his back. Max's character was fun to learn about, and seeing him carry on the family tradition of being a magician.Max is a great main character, and I can't wait to find out more about his family - each of them could easily be a main character in their own book. The protagonist in this story is Max, a schoolboy who loves magic tricks and this book is told from his perspective.

I was so wrapped up into this story about Max, I wanted to know if everything changes and if Max would be successful to stop the boy at school bullying him, and if he can stop the controlling adult bullies the Crayfish twins. Our Non-Fiction Range includes: Academic, Photography, Audio books, Business, Cook Books, Craft Books, Health and Fitness Books, Mind, Body, Spirit (Tarot). Description of the book: Max Mullers loves doing magic tricks – his gran has taught him everything he knows! Overall, I recommend this book to any child with an interest in magic or readers of a wide variety of books.But sadly he is still a victim of bullying and disaster strikes when one day watching his father's toy stall the local bully Bottley causes trouble.
