Finding Maxwell

“Do you know what is terrible about being eight years old?”

Dragged to St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, Maxwell wonders what can be worse. On holiday with his parents, the list of boring visits grows too much for his taste. Max wants to become a knight and rescue princesses, not to discover already known places.

Then a secret is uncovered, and Max jumps on the occasion to make a wonderful discovery. He is a genius after all.

But the world can be enormous when you are a child, and finding his parents turns out to be quite a challenge. Who is going to help him?

A cute and funny story of imagination, curiosity and adventure.

What they say about the book

“A wonderful story that transports you back to a time you were a child, on holiday with your parents and wishing for adventure. A page turner without doubt and highly recommended.”
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ from Richard on

“A beautiful story of an 8 years old boy full of dreams and imagination. I really liked to discover the world with Maxwell eyes’. It’s very well written with a touch of humour, don’t hesitate to read it!”
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ from Anaelle on

“Naivety, hyperactivity, an imaginary world where he can be a hero. All the factors are there to put ourselves in this child’s place, and perhaps to remind us what it is to be a child. We feel the boundaries between the adult/real world and the childhood/dream one. The point of view is just right. Bravo.”
