book pick: max cleans up.

I was first introduced to Rosemary Wells when P was an infant. She loved Goodnight Max so much we read it almost every night of her infant and toddler life. I absolutely adore every one of her books. Her writing has a simple cadence with relatable and funny story lines that lend themselves to being read time and time again.

Hello there! I'm Allison Czarnecki, founder + editor of Petit Elefant, a blog all about style on a budget for every part of your life: style / home / travel / family. I do a lot of how-to beauty + style tutorials, travel posts, easy recipes, home remodel projects, and cool DIY crafts you totally want to try. I'm super happily married (to a hot Polish immigrant) and am the mother of two kids, a daughter and son, all of whom are featured here on the regular. We live in the country but we're a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!


  1. KJ :

    I must get these books, for obvious reasons. I can’t believe I didn’t know they existed.

  2. Naomi :

    LOVE Max and Ruby! Roo likes the Yoko books a lot, too.

  3. the HeartTongues :

    Autumn likes to watch Max & Ruby; I bet she’d like a book or two even more! Peter thinks Ruby is most annoying, however… I say she seems typical “big sister”-ish to me…

  4. Dawn :

    I love this and so do my girls. When I was little (I’m old!) I had Rosemary Wells books (Morris’ Disappearing Bag was my favorite!) too!

  5. Nancy :

    My youngest son love Max. We actually just got him Max Cleans up this past weekend.

    Cute blog!

  6. Holly :

    I am not joking when I say that we have read this book every night at my house. My daughter LOVES max & ruby.
