What a marvelous reading adventure Magnus Maximus is for any reader! One could linger over each miraculous page. This book is the true measure of what children’s literature should be…. Science and math books are in great demand, and I could think of no better way to introduce a unit on measurement than with Magnus. Alliterations abound and the vocabulary is so juicy that readers receive a double dose of learning and entertainment with each paragraph…As if that isn’t enough, the tale is full of the value of noticing the small things in life, the importance of human communication and connection, and the triumph of the human spirit.
