Max & Ruby and Twin Trouble
First sentence: Max’s sister, Ruby, knew all about new babies. Mama and Papa were going to have one. “You can see for yourself, Max,” said Ruby. “There’s a new baby in there!” But Max knew Mama had eaten too many cookies. He showed Ruby the cookie jar. It was empty. “See!” Max said to Ruby.
Premise/plot: Max and Ruby are going to have a new brother or sister. Max knows little if anything about babies. Ruby, of course, claims to know everything. She remembers Max’s baby days. Plus she has a Hannah the Howler doll. But is this family ready to welcome twins?!?!
My thoughts: I love Max and Ruby though I am still adjusting to a Max that talks. But even though some things have changed through the years, this brother sister pair still have charm and humor.
