A son who loved his mom.
C ass is 11 years old and is the female protagonist of the story; she is prepared for every disaster going from floods, to tornadoes and drives everyone crazy with her constant fretting about the next catastrophic calamity that could occur. Max-Ernest is also 11 years old and his parents are divorced due to not being able to decide whether he should be called Max or Ernest hence the double-barrelled first name. Max-Ernest has a speech impediment causing him to talk and talk and talk and talk and talk until he is told to shut up and as a result Cass is his only friend. Cass and Max-Ernest are a match made in heaven as they both have their unique and — er — quirky personalities making them different to the average 11 year-old. Cass with her predicting of the next catastrophe and Max-Ernest with his lack of knowing when to shut up means that they get on like a house on fire even when no one else wants to know them.

These books may follow one simple idea rather than explore a more developed narrative arc. For authors like Calef Brown, writer and illustrator of such books as We Go Together , the art came first and the writing followed.
