There are few things more pleasurable for children than listening to a story and having the opportunity to pore over intriguing illustrations. T.R. Knight provides just that. As Max regards his brothers' collections of stamps and coins, he is perplexed about what he himself might collect. Then he’s inspired, and he’s off collecting words—cut-out printed words, words with personal connections, and even words from the dictionary. His collection has possibilities that strongly eclipse his brothers’ hobbies. Knight is an unobtrusive narrator who lets the action unfold through Max's involvement with his brothers. Knight narrates in a leisurely style, letting the story’s subtleties and interplay with the illustrations tell the tale. A.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 08]
