Frequently asked questions

What is The Max Letters?

The Max Letters is a unique story experience. It's the story of Prince Max and his fantastic friends on a quest to find the greatest treasure in the land, told through 24 beautiful chapter letters across 12 months.

It's a fun way to consume an epic adventure story, with the nostalgic magic we all remember of receiving a handwritten letter in the mail - sealed, stamped and posted to your mailbox. We want to keep this special experience alive for children - and adults too! - everywhere.

What exactly does a subscription include?

A subscription includes 24 beautiful chapter letters mailed across 12 months' time. Each letter includes minimum 2-3 physical pages, covered front-and-back in colorful story content. An introductory card with a small note to the reader is also included in each. 


Also included is a list of Question Prompts that will be made immediately available upon purchase, in the form of a PDF that can be downloaded or printed. These question prompts are meant to spark conversation with a young reader you gift, so that you may "keep up" with their story journey, even if you aren't reading the letters. They'll also help you to explore your young reader's thoughts and discuss deeper themes in the text such as friendship, courage, truth and more. All are able to be navigated at the age appropriate level of your young reader.
What is the 'Question Prompts' I see mentioned?

Once you purchase a subscription, a list of Question Prompts will be made immediately available to you in the form of a PDF that can be downloaded or printed. These question prompts correspond with each chapter letter, and are meant to spark conversation with a young reader you gift, so that you may "keep up" with their story journey, even if you aren't reading the letters. They'll also help you to explore your young reader's thoughts and discuss deeper themes in the text such as friendship, courage, truth and more. All are able to be navigated at the age appropriate level of your young reader.


You can get a sneak peak of the Question Prompts here.
Before I buy, I want to know more specifics about the story.

The basic plot is this:

The King sends three sons on a quest to find the greatest treasure in the land. The one who succeeds shall be crown prince. Max, following his heart against the logic of the quest to fulfill his word, encounters amazing friends and challenges. Stalked by an ancient evil which plots to bend the brothers’ quests to its own ends, the prince is brought at last to face the Witch’s Tower.

What is the recommended age for this?

Every child is different, but generally ages 8-14 are the perfect age - or if you would like to read the story to your child, even younger! My father, the author of this series, read my brother and I these stories starting at ages 6 and 7, and it was a delightful experience for us. Of course deeper meaning and a new level of enjoyment will come at each reading through the years. Another way to determine whether your child is a fit is to think of their fit for a comparable story – The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Is the content family-friendly? Can I read this aloud to the whole family?

Yes! The author read this story aloud to his children at bedtime when they were around 6 and 7 years old, so you'd be carrying on a lovely tradition if you read aloud to your family as well. The content contains action and adventure, but nothing inappropriate.  

Is this a book?

Sort of. Kind of. Not really. The content of our chapter letters are taken from the author's book The Witch's Tower in The Max Series. But this experience is something different. It came out of a wild idea to turn an already wonderful story into something extra special and fun by telling it with beautiful art and illustrations, allowing it to build excitement and unfold across time.

This, combined with the love and nostalgia we remember as kids, being so excited to open our own piece of mail that had been written, stamped and sent to us with care... We just had to give it a try – and sure enough, we think there's something special to this experience, and we hope you love it too!

I'd like all my kids to receive this. Can I add multiple names to the envelope?

Yes, you can send a subscription to multiple members of a household. Simply enter all of their names in the "Letter Recipient Name" field at checkout. For example:


First Name: "Sam, Ben & Allie" 
Last Name: "Walker"

Or another popular option:

First Name: "The Walker"
Last Name: "Family"
When will I receive my letter?

We mail letters on the 14th and 28th of each month. (When these days fall on a holiday or weekend we mail on the previous business day.) You will have the option to select your own starting mail date at checkout. This way you will have the ability to begin the subscription right away (at our next mail date) or delay your first letter due to a special occasion like a birthday or holiday.
