My daughter is a reader and in this blog post, we’re going to talk about The Misadventures of Max Crumbly: Masters of Mischief and what she thought of it. The author, Rachel Renée Russell also writes Dork Diaries, which my daughter loves.
This book is set in the world of the mega-hit series Dork Diaries. The Misadventures of Max Crumbly stars Max Crumbly, friend to Nikki Maxwell of Dork Diaries, who goes to a different school and manages to get into a whole lot of trouble. And I’m talking about a lot of trouble. The series is written in diary format with illustrations and doodles of Max’s mishaps.
Max starts at a new middle school and faces the school bully who stuffs Max into his locker. Max wants nothing more than to be like his comic superhero idols and though his ability to smell pizza from a block away isn’t exactly a superpower, he’s still going to try to be the hero his school needs!
Just like the Dork Diaries, The Misadventures of Max Crumbly series is about embracing who you are and having a ton of fun along the way!
My Daughter’s review:
This is the third book in the series about Max Crumbly. The book is written in the form of a journal. Max wants to be a superhero, so he and his sidekick, Erin, they go into the school and stop some bad guys who were trying to steal expensive computers. Then they fell into a dumpster and were trapped. Can you imagine?? They had to find a way out and then the robbers also stole Max’s dad’s vintage comic books – so they had they had to find them also. In the middle of the night, they had to escape from the robbers and get back to their houses. Can the two friends avoid being caught and getting in trouble while keeping their school safe from bullies and criminals? You’ll love reading about the rest of Max and Erin’s misadventures – so I think you should get a copy!

My daughter has not read the Dork Diaries. I think she would enjoy both series and I try to have her read as much as possible.

I have not read the Dork Diaries, but I think it looks really good. My kids enjoy the diary type books and I think they would really enjoy the Max Crumbly books.
