Max and Ruby's Bedtime Book
Rosemary Wells born January 29, is an American writer and illustrator of children's books. Wells has also written Noisy Nora , Yoko , the Voyage to the Bunny Planet series, a Christmas book called Morris's Disappearing Bag and a collected book of illustrations of Rodgers and Hammerstein songs. She has also published Red Moon at Sharpsburg , a historical novel featuring a young girl in the American Civil War. A common theme in Rosemary Wells' stories is the use of animal characters rather than humans. In the children's journal Stone Soup, Wells has stated that she writes using animals because it allows her to address sophisticated, controversial topics in way children can understand and adults can accept. For example, Yoko tackles the thorny topics of racism.
The distinct personality of each bunny sibling comes through loud and clear in these humorous stories that introduce important concepts. When Ruby sends out invitations to a party, Max sends out his own which are delivered to Grandma. Children are encouraged to participate by lifting the flaps in this sturdy, colorful book.
