Booklist Reviews

In this follow-up to Max's Words (2006), dreamy Max once again pulls his older brothers into invented-language games. This time, Max is collecting words that rhyme. While lurking at the edge of his brothers' croquet match, he invents a dragon friend, whom he imagines flying above him in the clouds, and he uses rhyme to describe what he sees to his brothers : "He's up there, dancing on air." His brothers scoff until the sky darkens, and the three siblings imagine a storm-cloud war between a dragon and a dinosaur, all described in rhyme. The unusual perspectives in the bright, textured artwork greatly enhance the story's drama and, in the active spreads of endearing dragons and goofy dinosaurs, the blurring of the real and imagined worlds. Many children will relate to the story's well-drawn sibling relationships, particularly as they progress from scornful teasing to close camaraderie, and Max's verbal games may inspire kids to try some rhyming wordplay of their own.
