From School Library Journal
Gr 3–7—Russell, author of the best-selling "Dork Diaries" series, returns with an even dorkier character. Fans may remember Max Crumbly from Tales from a Not-So-Perfect Pet Sitter. Max, who was previously homeschooled by his grandmother, is having a hard time adjusting to life at his new public school. Max's biggest problem is a bully named Doug "Thug" Thurston, who traps him in his locker right before a three-day weekend, leaving him as the only witness to the sinister activities taking place while the school is closed. The story ends on a cliffhanger, a sure sign that this is not the last of Max Crumbly. Kyle Beltran's animated portrayal of Max helps bring the text to life so listeners (almost) won't miss Russell's amusing illustrations. VERDICT Recommended for "Dork Diaries" fans. ["Max's goofy, embarrassing exploits will make this a popular and high-circulating item in most collections": SLJ 7/16 review of the S. & S. Aladdin book.]—Theresa Horn, St. Joseph County Public Library, South Bend, IN --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
Poor Max Crumbly! Stuffed in his locker for the second time in one day! Thinking he might never get out,
Max decides to chronicle his first two weeks of eighth grade at South Ridge Middle School in his
journal—at least then there will be a record of what happened when his body is found. Coming from seven
years of homeschooling, Max dreamed of being a superhero here; instead, he’s school-bully Doug “Thug”
Thurston’s new favorite target. Luckily, Erin Madison rescued Max from his first involuntary locker
vacation, but the next time Thug strikes is after everyone has left for a three-day weekend. Enduring a few
hours of cramped conditions, Max escapes through the back of his locker, where he crawls through
ductwork, foils a robbery, and saves the school’s new computers! 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.
HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Russell’s enormously popular Dork Diaries pushed her to the top of
the best-seller list. Expect no less from her new series.
