Therefore, Sunday breakfast was Mary's showcase meal of the week, a matter of sweet rolls and fresh juice, sausages, bacon, and thick cheesy omelets.
They ate these breakfasts at a table set with linen napkins, silver cutlery, and the good china. On Sunday mornings, the Starlings could enjoy a leisurely family meal.
But when William came back into the dining room, he couldn't contain his curiosity. He pushed his unfinished plate aside. From inside the packet, he pulled two long envelopes, one small, heavy red silk bag, and one thick sheet of paper covered with words arranged in lines as straight as soldiers on a battlefield.
He read this letter through silently. When he had finished, he looked across the table to his wife and waited, watching her. She waited, watching him.
Neither of them looked at Max, who had also stopped eating but did not speak. He knew better than to interrupt the drama they were creating.
William set the letter down on the table, pulled his plate close again, and picked up his fork. Patient, silent, Mary watched, waiting, until at last she burst out laughing and said, "All right, William.
I give up. I'll ask, if you're going to be so. What does the letter say? After he had chewed for an irritatingly long time, and swallowed, and savored the last of his orange juice, he said, in a voice that vibrated like a tuning fork, "It promises, my dearling, that a great adventure awaits us.
She rose from the table. William was not the only dramatist in the family. With no time for adventures. You win. Come back, sit down, and lend me your ears.
These are his exact words," William Starling said, facing the letter outward and waving it gently, as if his wife and son could read moving script.
He used his own voice to tell her, "We've been invited to spend several months, or more, in his raj. In India, Mary. We've never been to India. And what do you say to that, my most beautiful and talented wife?
Very odd indeed. What use can he have for us? Like in Elizabethan England, a troupe of actors to entertain his court and to travel among his villages, performing.
He wants us to find people of talent and teach them how to act, and introduce them to plays, and show them how to produce a play.
He says no other maharajah has his own theatrical company, and he'll be the first, he'll lead the way. Think of it, Mary. Max twisted in his chair so he could read it, too.
The letter was written on heavy, gilt-edged paper, embossed at the top with a spiky design, like a series of upside-down Vs of varying height crowding together, even overlapping.
The Maharajah offered this opportunity to the Starling Theatrical Company because, he said, he had once seen their brilliant performance of a play, the name of which he couldn't recall, in a great city, although he couldn't be certain just which of the world's great cities it had been.
He had, however, remembered not only the name of the Company but also its home base, so indelible had been the impression made on him by the talented couple who were its primary actors.
So that when he conceived the dream of having a theatrical company of his own, he resolved immediately to persuade them to come to his "most pleasing and welcoming country, with its most lovely landscapes.
We will live in a maharajah's palace. Imagine it. Neither of them so much as glanced at Max. She promised him, "When you're older it'll be different.
After his eighth birthday, Max's parents began to give him jobs in the theater--prompting actors during performances, keeping track of props, even sometimes appearing onstage if a child was needed as background for a scene.
He missed many days of school, but he was smart enough to progress from year to year at the normal rate. After his tenth birthday, his parents sometimes took Max with them when they traveled.
Then he was absent not only for rehearsals or after late performances, but also because he was on the road, visiting distant cities with the Starling Theatrical Company.
Max could understand why the other boys and the teachers liked him less and less each year. You can't know a lot of plays well, some of them written by William Shakespeare, without getting a good understanding of how and why people do what they do.
But he wouldn't have changed his life for anything their friendship and approval had to offer. His parents were the most fascinating people he knew.
He never tired of their performances, on the stage or out on a street or even in their own kitchen. Max didn't want to be an actor, although he could carry off a minor role, given the right costume.
He thought that, just as his eyes were a mixture of gray and black and brown that made a new, as yet unnamed and possibly unpleasant color, he himself was a mix of their two characters, and therefore different from both of them.
And he knew that in their actorish way his parents cared about him, and enjoyed him, and respected him. After twelve years, a boy's parents have done all they can.
He's ready to be independent! Does he look like independence material to you? I hope he's ready. This, despite his father's claim, had given him no noticeable increase in independence, about which Max was more relieved than disappointed.
He enjoyed his father's ebullience, most of the time, and he never tired of watching his mother perform. He laughed and applauded as loud as anyone else when William Starling rose to his feet in some public house or inn to accept a compliment.
That Sunday morning, with the unexpected invitation on the table between them, William and Mary Starling bowed their heads toward one another, congratulating themselves on this success.
They had forgotten Max. Usually, Max didn't worry about being unnoticed, but on that occasion he worried that his parents could be on a boat and halfway across the ocean to India before they realized that someone wasn't with them.
William Starling said to his wife, in a voice that rang with proud satisfaction, "You see how our fame grows?
We are now worthy of first-class tickets"--and he held up the two envelopes--"on the Flower of Kashmir.
We sail at noon, in two weeks and," he looked at a ticket, "three days. We're promised payment in gold and jewels.
An emissary awaits our response, at the Hotel Excelsior. What do we tell this Maharajah of Kashmir? Who has sent you. Narrow ropes of gold had been wound together, ribbons of gold woven through and around one another, in the same spiky design that appeared at the top of the Maharajah's stationery.
Nestled in the curves and marking the points of the upside-down Vs--possibly mountains, or perhaps an unknown Indian letter--were colored stones, polished so that their reds and greens and deep blues gleamed.
Studded as it was with jewels, the piece could even have been a crown. She picked it up. Feel this, it's heavy. Not me, and not you either, am I right?
Finally, he had to ask. William looked at Mary, who was already looking at him, waiting for her cue. This told Mary what role she was playing, the mother who did not wish to be parted from her son.
You know you will, so don't bother pretending otherwise. Even knowing them as well as he did, he couldn't be sure.
His father sighed, a long, drawn-out exhaling of breath. I know. You're right. As well, I wouldn't want to deny him the experience of India.
But what can we do? The invitation is only for us two, there are only two tickets, and so we cannot accept. Max was waiting to hear what conclusion his father had in mind for this scene before he made his own suggestions he could be smuggled into the cabin in a trunk, or they could buy him a ticket--it didn't have to be first class--or he could work as a cabin boy on the ship.
Sometimes, his father irritated him. Max expanded his irritation to include his indulgent mother. Then his head snapped up, as if an idea had seized the tops of his ears, and jerked.
Max knew that if he didn't pick up the cue here it would take a long time to get to the end of this, so he obliged. The tension built in the room.
It's obvious, isn't it? The Maharajah must not have known. And how could he? Max relaxed. Of course they would never go without him, off to India for months and months.
I'll accept the offer, but only on the condition that there be a third ticket. For you," he told Max. Do you think you can live up to that? He'd seen photographs of India in the Queensbridge Gazette, and he'd read articles in magazines about tiger hunts and the Taj Mahal.
Grammie had given him Kim for his tenth birthday, and he had read it several times over. The crowded cities, the elegant palaces surrounded by park-like gardens, the high mountains and flower-filled lakes, the thieves and cutthroats and garroters and pickpockets, the temples inhabited by vicious monkeys, the huge golden statues of the Buddha, howdahs like miniature houses on tops of elephants, vipers and mongooses, the spices and sweets--suddenly there was nothing else Max wanted in his life other than to go to India.
Don't tell me you're willing to give up the lessons you tortured us about last year? His mother pointed out, "He's worked with Joachim for more than two years now, so it wasn't exactly a momentary impulse, and you have to admit that our sets are much improved.
I remember, remember vividly, the scenes, the tantrums," he said. With a glare at Max, he concluded, "The refusal to eat. In the early s, year-old Max arrives at the dock to join his parents for a voyage to India only to learn that they have already gone, leaving him a cryptic note.
He confides in his grandmother, who encourages him to support himself until their return. After he finds a lost toddler and restores the boy to his mother, her friends hire Max to recover other things they have lost.
Voigt takes her time creating multifaceted characters and laying the groundwork for the next two volumes in the Mister Max trilogy, while the novel quietly builds a momentum of its own.
The hint of lurking villainy is real, but even stronger is the sense that Max, his grandmother, and his friends will use their individual strengths to set things right.
Stay tuned. Grades We begin with twelve-year-old Maximilian Sterling's very theatrical parents mysteriously disappearing, leaving him in the care of his grandmother.
What follows is not what I expected--a wonderful surprise. In book three, Max has finally found out where his parents are, so he devises a plan to go and get his parents back.
I absolutely loved how his grandmother was involved in this plan. He has to make his way to Andesia with everyone, as his father was named King, and his mother, the Queen.
This book was just as amazing as the first two! Once again, I love Max's acting skills. He does anything that he has to do in order to get his parents back, so he's a pretty awesome kid.
Also, I found it so cool that Joachim helped Max with his Andesia plan. I think that's why Joachim was my favorite character.
That, and he's an artist; who doesn't love artists? I've also just realized that I've yet to mention the beautiful illustrations in these books even though they were unfinished versions; they're absolutely incredible!
Drawings are one of my favorite things about middle grade books, because they just add so much to the story.
I loved looking at them and seeing how the characters were meant to be seen and portrayed. One thing that I love about this series was that I didn't really find any parts of it to be slow-moving or boring at all.
I was always interested, in each and every book. That's why this series is highly recommended to all middle grade readers!
Jul 30, Monique rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , awesome , annoyingthings , adventure , 5-stars.
I loved the adventure, the build up to the rescuing. But, honestly, because the parents were away most of the other books all of the second you forget how annoying the father is, and I feel so bad for Max!
You love them, but your parents are also imperfect with sometimes annoying traits. But the ending She should totally pick up this book three years later with Max becoming a view spoiler [spy for the king hide spoiler ].
View 1 comment. Oct 06, Ruby rated it it was amazing. But I found so much more depth while reading it and it was amazing.
This book also subtly uses point of view in a way that makes the book so much more interesting for the reader. As in, nothing happened. Pia is probably THE most interesting supporting character and after so much mystery and confusion and ambiguity she just kinda stops after Max leaves Queensbridge.
I definitely recommend this series. Sep 21, Jb rated it it was amazing. The series is intelligent and well paced, and one I'm always excited for.
I was finally able to get my hands on a copy, after an exaggerated wait, and I was not disappointed! I don't know if there will be another, but the possibility has me over the moon!
I would love to urge the author into continuing the series, in any way, shape or form, but I'm also happy with the way things ended.
I want to know how his relationships develop and what kind of future is waiting for this solutioneer. I haven't written a review in a while, which I'm sorry for, but this was too good to not comment.
Please write another one!!! Dec 25, Jessica F rated it liked it Shelves: middle-grade , mystery-thriller. A pretty satisfying conclusion.
The twist at the beginning regarding Max's parents really set the stage well and made the rest of the plot more plausible. It was refreshing to finally see some action after all that filler in the second novel!
I'm not sure how middle graders would find this series. It's quite slow moving and I don't think the average middle grader has enough background knowledge to appreciate all the references to Shakespeare's works.
It's a decent middle grade mystery, but not on A pretty satisfying conclusion. It's a decent middle grade mystery, but not one I would be in a rush to recommend.
Aug 30, Lora rated it really liked it. My 8 year old really liked this series, but I think the age group who most would like it is year olds.
It is a fun read aloud series and I love how she makes so many connections to drama and Shakespeare. Also, in the third book, the adventure moves on South America, and gives kids an opportunity to learn more about that area of the world.
The character development of the main character is well done. The story does seem to go on longer than it needs to at times, but if you pace the books, i My 8 year old really liked this series, but I think the age group who most would like it is year olds.
The story does seem to go on longer than it needs to at times, but if you pace the books, it is a charming story. Max Starling and his friends may just have a plan for rescuing his parents from their bizarre mission as the King and Queen of a country - but when they arrive and find tensions growing, will everything Max has learned from his time solutioning be enough to get everybody out safe?
Voigt gives readers a fun and complex adventure that wraps up this trilogy with plenty of twists along the way. In a world beyond the laws he grew up with, Mister Max will have to think on his feet like never before!
Jun 19, K Grant rated it really liked it. I found myself skipping descriptions, and again was annoyed at the abrupt changes of points of views.
Still, the soltioneer does good work. He finds ways to see a bigger picture, and more than one way to solve the problems before him. Jan 15, Jennifer rated it it was amazing.
This is a fun trilogy! Max is definitely way too sensitive, mature, smart and talented of an actor to be a twelve year old boy, but if you can overlook that detail you're in for a captivating adventure!
I really like the dialog, the characters, and the compassion and wisdom of the main characters. Yay, I finally finished this series.
It was decent, but after 2. Jul 22, Ita rated it it was ok Shelves: ya , I quite liked the first two books. They were charming, but this one was unsatisfying.
The rescue plot required too much suspension of disbelief. Aug 22, Patty rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction-juv. The final book in the Mister Max series?
Sep 11, Dolores rated it really liked it. Such a good series. This is the last of the Mister Max series.
The mystery of what his parents are doing in Andesia is solved. Max is a fine Solutioneer. Jan 01, Donna rated it really liked it.
The third book in this series. Great story for the juvenile reader and the adult reader who likes a little adventure and a light read.
Jan 21, Susan Forsgren rated it really liked it Shelves: slmta. I am glad I read all three books. The ending was the best, but the reader would not understand it, if they had not waded through the other two.
Mar 10, Ryan Lingsweiler rated it liked it. May 01, Echo rated it really liked it. Loved this series and hoping for more to come about the Solutioneer!!!
This book had a great plot, but sometimes got a little confusing, but I love a challenging read.
