Max & George

A charming new literary duo are swinging onto the children’s book scene thanks to a city author.

Matthew Robins has just published the first book of a potential series featuring two friends called Max and George.

Max is a young deaf boy who is struggling to make friends due to the way others perceive his disability, while George is a very special monkey.

In ‘Max and George Make New Friends’ the pair show that everyone has their own special gifts and highlight the importance of treating everyone equally.

Youngsters will be enthralled by the bright and colourful illustrations and readers even get the chance to learn some British Sign Language as the story progresses.

Matthew said: “The aim of each book is to deliver an important message that encourages young readers to think about their actions in a fun and entertaining way.”

The book is £7.99, and a great entertaining, learning tool.
