Max knew he looked beautiful! Being beautiful was one of the things that made swaltzing feel so good. Max enjoys swaltzing even more than squashing snails and spreading Vegemite on the cat. But when his favourite cousin, Marty, calls him a "weirdo", Max has to decide what he wants most of all.
This is a beautiful picture book that captures a young child's first dilemma when he discovers that the outside world's perception of him may not be as he sees himself.
