Max Explains Everything: Grocery Store Expert

Illustrated by Deborah Hocking
G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2018. Picture Book.
Max is an expert shopper since his mom takes him to the grocery store All. The. Time. He teaches the reader how to possibly get out of the task like substituting water instead milk for cereal, faking toe injuries so there is no possible way to walk the long aisles, but when essentials like toilet paper run out there is no escape. But never fear there is a plan! Make sure to pick your favorite cereal before you mom chooses the healthy ones, always be on the look out for free food samples (everything tastes better on a toothpick) and remind your mom of important holidays so you can get a tasty frosted treat from the bakery. Oh, and don’t forget to grab a bag of pet food even though you do not own one; it’s just one step closer to getting one.
This humorous and relatable story might make the next trip to the grocery store a little bit more fun. Being the first in a new series, I can’t wait to see what else Max is an expert at!
