The Misadventures of Max Crumbly: Locker Hero

(2 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

Unfortunately for Max Crumbly, the school bully has decided that the best place for him is inside his locker, and he ends up in there a lot. The problem is that when Max gets scared, he is most likely to have a panic attack or wet himself - not exactly hero behaviour.

So when he gets locked in after everyone has left for the long weekend, Max realises he could be in real trouble - especially when three thieves break in to steal the school's new computers. Will he be able to control his bladder long enough to save the day?

Max Crumbly is awkwardly adorable. He is anxious, suffers from asthma, can't talk to girls and is unable to defend himself from the school bully, but he never lets any of that get him down. Written in journal format and peppered with humorous illustrations, Max's (mis)adventures are sure to be a hit.
