The Max and Meta books celebrate the truly brilliant and diverse world of nature that children live in today. They entertain, inform and delight readers about the colours, sounds, senses, forces of nature – and much more!
Max and Meta explore the natural world around them with curiosity and silly stunts. With a snap of her fingers, Meta can do magic tricks, like time travel and transporting our two heroes to new places.
The books are written for children aged 6-7. The first books in the series cover topics like the Moon, Gravity and Time.
