Why read it?

1 author picked Maximillian Villainous as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Kids want their parents to be proud of them, and sometimes that collides with their true desires, and this book masterfully shows that there is common ground, even when it appears there isn’t.

From Wendy's list on kids who celebrate being themselves.
