Max and Ruby
By Rosemary Wells
Our favorites: Max and Ruby's Bedtime Book, Bunny Cakes, Max's Dragon Shirt
Perfect for: Siblings who drive each other crazy.
The hook: Ruby, the older sister, has a leg up on just about everything. Although Max, the baby brother, can't yet speak, read, or write — and is constantly messing-up — in the 25-plus books, he always gets what he wants (much to Ruby's annoyance), be it the coveted chocolate chicken or the dragon shirt.
