A brand-new series from #1 New York Times bestselling Dork Diaries author Rachel Renee Russell! Introducing Max Crumbly!

Max Crumbly is about to face the scariest place he’s ever been: South Ridge Middle School.

There’s a lot that’s great about his new school, but there’s also one big problem—Doug, the school bully whose hobby is stuffing Max in his locker.

If only Max could be like the hero in his favorite comics. Unfortunately, Max’s uncanny, almost superhuman ability to smell pizza from a block away won’t exactly save any lives or foil bad guys.

But that doesn’t mean Max won’t do his best to be the hero his school needs!
Rachel Renée Russell is an attorney who prefers writing tween books to legal briefs. (Mainly because books are a lot more fun and pajamas and bunny slippers aren’t allowed in court.) Rachel lives in Chantilly, Virginia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable ! This novel was so adorable, cute, funny, magnificent, and really just over all an A plus job. The drawings inside were also beyond beautiful. You can tell how much love and joy was put into this book. And at the beginning it does say it will leave you with a cliff hangar... and it sure does. I am so excited to see where Max goes from here. This seems to be a new series you can read at any age and just appreciate !!! I would highly recommend!

Read from the Book

The Misadventures of Max Crumbly 1 1. MY SECRET LIFE AS A SUPERHERO ZERO If I had SUPERPOWERS, life in middle school wouldn’t be quite so CRUDDY. Hey, I’d NEVER miss the stupid bus again, because I’d just FLY to school! . . . AWESOME, right? That would pretty much make ME the COOLEST kid at my school! But I’ll let you in on a secret. Getting bombed by an angry bird is NOT cool. It’s just . . . NASTY!! TV, comic books, and movies make all this superhero stuff look SO easy. But it ISN’T! So don’t believe the HYPE. You CAN’T get superpowers by hanging out in a laboratory, mixing up colorful, glowing liquids that you simply DRINK. . . . ME, MIXING UP A YUMMY SUPERPOWER SMOOTHIEHOW do I know it doesn’t work? . . . “OOPS!”Let me put it this way. . . . Even if I DID have superpowers, the very first person I’d need to rescue is . . . MYSELF! WHY? Because a guy at school pulled a lousy PRANK on me. And, unfortunately, I might be DEAD by the time you read this! Yes, I said “DEAD.” Okay, I’ll admit that he didn’t MEAN to kill me. But still . . . !! So if you’re the type who gets FREAKED OUT over this kind of stuff (or comic book cliffhangers), you probably shouldn’t read my journal. . . . Um . . . excuse me, but are you STILL reading?! Okay, fine! Go right ahead. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Editorial Reviews

"This wacky middle-school misadventure will delight Wimpy Kid and Tom Gates fans, particularly with its humorous tone and illustrations. Russell’s new series boasts a memorable character in Max Crumbly, who is capable of rivaling Dork
Diaries’ Nikki Maxwell."
