St. Lawrence News


Maxwell E. Eaton III '04, is the author and illustrator of a children's book, The Adventures of Max and Pinky: Best Buds, published by Knopf Books for Young Readers and due on shelves December 26, 2006.

The publishers state, "For Max and Pinky every Saturday is Adventure Day. Today is Saturday, but where is Pinky? Has he gotten lost or carried away by bunnies -- or is he just off somewhere stuffing himself with marshmallows? Watch Max dive into mud, question a polar bear and be dissed by a horse named Chuck. Nothing will stop him from finding his pink pal -- because a guy will do anything for his best bud!"

Also according to Knopf, "Initial inspiration for this story came from a little book [Eaton] created for an elementary school Spanish class. Denied a pet goat in his childhood, [Eaton] intends to incorporate one into future Max and Pinky adventures. Look for Superheroes, soaring into bookstores this fall."

Eaton, of Burlington, Vermont, earned his St. Lawrence degree in English and fine arts.
