Why read it?
1 author picked Max as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
This is a perfectly charming story about a boy who is way into ballet and baseball, written in the 1970s, but which still holds up today. And no one ever makes fun of him. Max is not necessarily Queer, but I consider it in the canon of kid’s books that address gender identity.
Our community of 6,000+ authors has personally recommended 10 books like Max.
