About the Book:

Publisher: Two Lions | Apr 1, 2021
Ages 3-7 | 32 pages

Julius and Macy like to play heroes. Julius pretends he’s the defender of the forest, while Macy has a quieter strength. When their snack disappears one night, they decide to track down the only one who could have taken it―the Night Goblin. They both have to be brave in their own ways, and they ultimately discover that the real thief isn’t anything like they imagined.

My Review

Julius and Macy: A Very Brave Night is a simple but sweet story about friendship and kindness. Julius and Macy makes the perfect duo in the forest, both enthusiastic about the game of playing heroes. Julius practices hard every night hoping to capture a possible villain, while Macy loves to offer a helping hand to someone in need. A real challenge comes when their snack gets stolen by an unknown creature. They have to gather all their courage to explore the unfamiliar cave until they finally meets the mysterious thief, who sounds very hungry and looks rather lonely.

The artistic and adorable illustrations in the book plays a significant role in building the lovely characters with personality and filling in the details about the storyline. The soft, dreamy night views of the forest are stunning while the characters are cute, lively, and delightful. The main message of the story is quite unique. Being brave isn't always about being a superhero. It may take courage to be kind and befriending a lonely soul can be considered heroic too. The book encourages young readers to be kind, friendly, willing to share and ready to help. It makes an excellent choice for a read-aloud or a bedtime story.
