Maxine

By Bob Graham
Illustrated by Bob Graham

A companion title to Bob Graham’s celebrated picture book Max, whose superhero family has just got bigger!

Max has a new baby sister – Maxine! Max is there for her first words, her first steps and … her first flight! But as Maxine grows up and starts school, she doesn’t feel like she quite fits in. In fact, she’s not sure if she feels comfortable in her superhero guise at all. Can Maxine convince her family that not all superheroes wear capes? With a strong, incredibly smart girl at its centre, this is a book to inspire any child to dream big and be exactly who, and how, they want to be.

  • A coming-of-age superhero story about growing up and discovering your identity, with the support of a loving family.
  • The empowering and heart-warming companion title to the highly celebrated Max, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2020.
  • Bob is a master storyteller and one of Australia's most revered bookmakers. His books have sold close to 4 million copies worldwide and are translated into 23 languages.
