Editorial Reviews

Bulletin Blue Ribbon 2016 Raleigh News & Observer Best of 2016 Fans of Clementine and Ramona have a reason to rejoice: there's a new kid on the block (at least for the weekend). Bighearted, hilarious, and tender, Weekends with Max and His Dad is an absolute charmer." -Katherine Applegate, Newbery medalist* "Urban's subtle and perceptive take on divorce will resonate with children facing similar predicaments as she blends Max's worries and "someone-sitting-on-his-chest" feelings with a vivid imagination and good intentions that take father and son on some very entertaining adventures-with future ones planned." - Publishers Weekly, starred review * "Urban excels at credibly presenting this situation from Max's third-grade point of view? Urban's writing is both crisply specific (a basset hound "sniffed as she walked through puddles, dragging her ears like flat-bottomed boats") and simple enough to be accessible." - Bulletin, starred review "Urban's touch is light throughout, and with likable characters? and a story just right for budding chapter-book readers, she's off to a good start." -Horn Book "The cast of characters grows throughout, but at the heart of the story is Max's warm, easygoing relationship with his father." -Booklist"
