A brand-new series from #1 NYT bestselling Dork Diaries author Rachel Renee Russell! Introducing Max Crumbly, the new Dork on the block...

Max is about to face the scariest place he's ever been - South Ridge Middle School! He has been home-schooled by his grandmother until now, and he's begged his parents to finally let him start attending a real school. He's starting to question that choice, though, with the Doug aka Thug Thurston Problem. As in, Thug keeps stuffing Max in his locker.
If only Max could be like the hero in all the comics he likes to read - or the ones he draws - and magically escape the locker and defeat Thug. 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!

Praise for Max Crumbly:
'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 rivalling Dork Diaries' Nikki Maxwell.' Booklist
`If you like Tom Gates, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and, of course, Dork Diaries you'll love this very funny new book series' The Sun
`Rachel Renee Russell had a huge success with her Dork Diaries and is back with The Misadventures of Max Crumbly: Locker Hero' Sunday Express
`Written in journal format and peppered with humorous illustrations, Max's (mis)adventures are sure to be a hit' Booktrust
`Bestselling Dork Diaries author Rachel Renee Russell has done it again - her brand-new series is amazing!' SPLAT magazine
`One of the strongest launch titles for a new series for a long time. It's just right on so many levels' Bookbag
`Cleverly ending on a cliffhanger, full of brilliant illustrations and easy to follow text, this series is bound to be a hit with readers of all abilities!' Hot Brands Cool Places
`It's a funny and exciting book for kids aged around 7-11 and I'm sure both boys and girls would enjoy it' A Mum Reviews

This is a great book. Its funny and has good pictures. Its full of action which made me keep reading as i really wanted to find out what happens next. I already really love the Dork Diaries and was excited to read something else by the same author. I was not disappointed, it was just as good.

Max Crumbly is one of the best books I have ever read!  It is funny and he is a little bit like my brother!  There is just one thing that I am not very happy about in the book - it has a CLIFFHANGER!!!!   I find that SO annoying because I always like to know what happens in the end.  Max Crumbly believes that he is a superhero (or he wants to be!).  When he is shoved inside his own locker for a whole day the back of his locker breaks and he can't believe what he sees..........

Everyone likes a good laugh, but if you don't that is ok, for the ones that do  this is the book for you!  If you liked Diary of Wimpy Kid or the Middle School series you will like The Misadventures of Max Crumbly, because it is quite similar.  Instead of being lame Max Crumbly is a hero because he stops some computers, from his school, from being stolen by three thieves. He also has a hard time in school because he gets bullied and gets shoved in his locker.  Will he get out of his locker in time? find that out yourself by reading the book, and don't worry it is not sad it is just really exciting.

I have really enjoyed reading this book.  It is similar to Diary of a Wimpy Kid which I love too.  It has great illustrations and all of the way too which add to the story and the story itself is really exciting - you just have to keep reading to find out what happens.  I would definitely read more books like this in the future.

I liked this book because it is very funny and written in a diary style which is easy to read.
I liked the bit where Max gets out of the locker towards the end of the book.
I would recommend it to those who like funny books and those who like diary style. Those who like Dork Diaries might like these.

Book was full of action. Laughed a thousand times because Max is SO funny and the artwork is cool. You get a feel of Max's adventures which also gets scary rather fast. The ending is a real cliffhanger. Can't wait to read the next story

This book is really good I didn't want to stop reading and finished the book fast. The characters are very funny, clever and my favourite characters were Ralph, Moose and Tucker as these were dumb and funny.
This book has a good twist that you don't expect half way through, there is also a cliffhanger that leaves you wanted the next book.
