Why Everyone Loves the Max Einstein Series


Our readers absolutely love the Max Einstein books! These adventure stories for readers 8+ are written by bestselling author James Patterson and co-author Chris Grabenstein, in collaboration with the Einstein archives.

Max has to be one of our favourite heroines thanks to her imagination and love of adventure, plus the science and environmental themes in the books appeal to so many young readers. 

The second book in the series Rebels With A Cause is out in paperback now, and you can read an extract here.

One lucky Year 6 class won a set of 12 copies of Rebels With a Cause to read together. Check out their, and other Toppsta readers', rave reviews of the book below!

Why Everyone Loves the Max Einstein Series

"The book is a very interesting read. It is exciting and inventive with an amazing storyline... I loved the characters and very much enjoyed every mission, big and small. The book takes you on a mission from fixing water infection in a country to reprogramme a robot to cook sausages. I would definitely recommend this book to people who love adventure and technology based books, but perhaps also people who are around the age of 9 - 11."

"I think Max Einstein is the perfect book for people who love science - like me. It also models girl power and real life scenarios. It is a really epic book by an amazing author and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in science or Albert Einstein."

"It was an amazing story, as it was inspiring and empowering showing anyone who reads it they can do anything they put their minds to and that kids can change the world and are just as important on this earth as adults. Please read this book!!"
