The story behind Max N Me Studio already had me hooked. McNall Mason, aka mom, looks for ways to communicate with her son, Max, who has Aspergers Syndrome. Thinking creatively, she begins making art as a project to raise money for charities and help Max with his social skills. (ah, hello kindred spirit!)
She doesn’t want to change Max. He’s all kinds of amazing as he is. She’s just looking to help him find his way through the world by letting him tell his stories and turning them into books. (sounds familiar, huh?)
Through this process and thanks to a mom who thinks out-of-the-box, Max is thriving. (now they’ve really got me.)
But what about the books? Would purchasing them just be a supportive nod to McNall’s efforts? I’d be okay with that, but…
Max from the Planet of Cool, To the Moon Billy June, and Play Free are delightful, vibrant, whimsical, magical and just the right kind of quirky! I want to live in the art studio, look like the moon, hang out with Sue and visit the planet of cool on my next vacation.
And get this…proceeds for these nifty little treasures support a variety of charities. McNall and Max are making our world “the planet of cool.”
(I’m totally hooked.)
