"Max is back in the fourth in his eponymous series of concept books . . . Kulikov's rich, textured paintings are filled with details that extend the story and invite young mathematicians to stop and examine Max's fantastic world . . . Bold. MAXimum fun!" --Kirkus Reviews "In the fourth story about Max and his two brothers, numbers and shapes take center stage instead of words." --School Library Journal "Kulikov's visual flights of fancy will set readers' imaginations soaring as Banks slyly introduces a bevy of math concepts." --Publishers Weekly, STARRED
