Maxwell the monkey operates a barbershop, where he offers everything from a trim to a chop. He excels at helping his fellow animals look shipshape and feel their best, no matter how unruly their locks. Whatever the coiffure quandary, Maxwell is your monkey. He tames Baboon s curls, styles Lion s mane, and trims Bear s beard, exclaiming each time: Your hair s the best I ve seen today! All s well until Elephant comes in, feeling sad because he has no hair. Can Maxwell help? Of course! After some careful thinking, he devises a solution to help even Elephant feel his best. Cale Atkinson s bright, cartoon-like digital illustrations beckon readers into Maxwell s world in this playful tale. Rhyming text, speech bubbles, and a refrain make this story a fun read-aloud accessible to early readers. Full of personality and style, Maxwell has a genuine charm and enthusiasm for helping others that kids will find immediately contagious.

-The exaggerated facial expressions of the characters convey great emotion... Preschoolers and kindergarteners will certainly enjoy [this book's] exuberance.---Quill & Quire -The bright, colorful illustrations are full of action and expressive animals...
