Max’s brother Benjamin collects stamps and his other brother Karl collects coins. Feeling left out Max decides to collect words. “He cut them out of magazines and newspapers. And he spread them across his desk.” He collects big and small words, words that make him happy, words he likes to eat, and words of his favourite colours. “Soon Max’s collection of words spreads into the hallway.” Max sorts the words to see if he could make a story with his huge collection. Karl and Benjamin gave him a helping hand and they create story after story.
