It's Monday morning and there's chaos at Maxine's house. Dad's got ketchup on his sleeve and has lost his yellow sock. Mum can't get the car to start. But there's time for a puppet show and maybe even a third piece of marmalade toast, right? Maxine has really got to get a move on!

This hilarious story from rapper, actor and comedian Ben Bailey Smith is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves and for Key Stage 1. It features engaging illustrations from Mette Engell and hilarious characters young readers will find hard to resist.

About Ben Bailey Smith

Ben Bailey Smith started his career as a UK-based rapper known as Doc Brown before diversifying and moving into mainstream TV and film acting, stand up comedy, screen writing and children's books. He has a host of notable television performances under his belt including roles in Law & Order and Miranda as well as the British children's show 4 O'Clock Club.

Mette Engell is a self-taught children' illustrator. She grew up in the northern part of Zealand, the largest island in Denmark. She has always loved coming up with stories and characters, so after her first child was born, she picked up her pencil and hasn't put it down since. Today she lives by the ocean with her husband and their three kids, two cats and a lionhead bunny in a blue house filled with art supplies, picture books and Lego.
