A young boy's logbook - 'not a record of what he does, but of inventions and experiments'. Through his drawings and descriptions of eraser aliens and robot families, Max works through the emotions of his parent's fighting, then separating. Lots of fun details - the kind of book you can sit and dwell on each page.

Who is Marissa Moss anyway?

I’ve been making children’s books for a looooong time. I sent my first picture book to publishers when I was nine, but it wasn’t very good and they didn’t publish it. I didn’t try again until I was a grown-up and then it took five years of sending out stories, getting them rejected, revising them and sending them back over and over until I got my first book.
