Max Kowalski Didn’t Mean It

Max Kowalski Didn't Mean It by Susie DayMax Kowalski can’t stay out of trouble. It’s not his fault. He’s just like his dad, Big Pete Kowalski: always in bother, always laughing it off.

When Dad disappears, it’s up to Max to take charge and look after his three little sisters: Thelma, Louise and Ripley. Just until Dad comes home. Because he’ll be home for Christmas, right?

Determined to keep the family together, Max takes his sisters to a remote village in Snowdonia, north Wales, where they can hide in a friend’s old cottage. There among the snowy mountains he finds new friends, new questions, and an ancient Welsh legend – of a sleeping dragon, guarding a lake of gold. Can Max keep his family safe, and defeat a dragon too? And is that really what he wants?

A warm, funny and emotional coming-of-age story for readers aged 8-12, about families, sheep, and what it really means to be a man.

If Jacqueline Wilson ganged up with Alan Garner and remixed A Monster Calls, with dragons. Powerful and deep.
