Recommends it for: parents of babies
Whenever a book makes it in to the real world of everyday living, there's got to be something to it. "Around and around the lobster went," is something that my whole family knows very well. Its breakout in to the real world came about at the playground, with a toddler who had a red coat, and who liked to run around a particular rock. Our boardbook version has been practically loved to death, but not quite!

Not as good as some of the others. Max gets the lobster as a birthday present, and other than that it isn't really about birthdays at all, which was a disappointment. (With Natalie's birthday only a couple weeks away I am looking for stories about birthdays). I do like the lobster toy which appears in many of the Max and Ruby stories, and it is cute that he wants to be chased again, but its just not as nice a story as some of the others.

My usual picture book did not arrive in time for my birthday lap time program. I checked to see what young birthday books were in and decided this would be the best despite it's small format. Not sure any babies got it, but the adults seemed to appreciate it.

We much prefer the original version in which Max gets a dragon instead of a lobster, but both are funny. Running away from and simultaneously wanting to play with his birthday toy, Max is knocked over, then says, "Again." So does our son as he asks us to read this book over and over.
