The Misadventures of Max Crumbly

A brand-new series from #1 bestselling Dork Diaries author Rachel Renée 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. There’s a lot that’s great about his new school, but there’s also one big problem – Doug aka Thug Thurston, the school bully whose new hobby is stuffing Max in his locker.

If only Max could be like the heroes in all the comics he likes to read – or the ones he draws. Unfortunately, Max’s uncanny, almost superhuman ability to smell pizza from a mile 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!Read an Extract
