The Misadventures of Max Crumbly: Masters of Mischief (Giveaway!)

Find a comfy spot and get ready for some fun summer reading! Simon & Schuster is partnering with me for a MASTERS OF MISCHIEF (The Misadventures of Max Crumbly #3) giveaway!

As a former teacher, mom of three and library volunteer, I’ve witnessed the many positive effects the “magic of literature” has in our children’s lives.   Books expand our knowledge, improve our literacy skills and introduce us to new subjects, ideas, and places in a highly entertaining way.

This summer, introduce your child to a series I know they will love: THE MISADVENTURES OF MAX CRUMBLY.  From the author of the DORK DIARIES this new series adventure introduces us to a new dorks, Max Crumbly and his sidekick Erin.  Written in a journal style with quirky fun illustrations, these books highly appeal to readers age 9 to 13.

The Misadventures of Max Crumbly: Masters of Mischief

My sons were huge fans of the DORK DIARIES in middle school and even at 16 and 18, they still enjoy reading THE MISADVENTURES OF MAX CRUMBLY series.  The interesting characters, exciting adventures and unique style of the books fascinate kids of all ages (I love them, too!)

MASTERS OF MISCHIEF (book 3 in The Misadventures of Max Crumbly series) by Rachel Renée Russell is now in stores, along with the first two books in the series: LOCKER HERO and MIDDLE SCHOOL MAYHEM.  Perfect for summer pool side reading, keeping your child entertained on long road trips or simply giving them a better alternative to video game play on a rainy day.

Books offer so many possibilities for our children including increased vocabulary skills, better writing skills, improved focus and even stress reduction.  When you can find a series they love like THE MISADVENTURES OF MAX CRUMBLY, it’s a true win!

About The Misadventures of Max Crumbly #3: Masters of Mischief

Max Crumbly is BACK!

From #1 New York Times bestselling Dork Diaries author Rachel Renée Russell comes the third book in a series about Max Crumbly and his daily ups and downs in middle school.

When we last left our courageous hero, Max Crumbly, and his trusty sidekick Erin, they had just finished foiling the plans of some bumbling thieves. But Max and Erin were trapped in a smelly, dangerous dumpster of doom and about to be discovered by the last people they wanted to find them.

Now in this latest installment of Max’s journals, Max and Erin face foes both new and old as their misadventures continue. Can the two friends avoid detection—and detention!—while keeping South Ridge Middle School safe from bullies and criminals?

About the Series

Be the hero you’ve always admired!

There’s a new DORK in town! New from #1 bestselling Dork Diaries author Rachel Renée Russell, The Misadventures of Max Crumbly series follows the adventures of undercover middle school hero, Max Crumbly.

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. The series is written in diary format with illustrations and doodles of Max’s mishaps.

In the beginning of the series, Max starts at a new middle school and faces the school bully who has begun a habit of stuffing 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!

While fans of Dork Diaries will be familiar with the format and enjoy new stories from the same world, this series featuring a male protagonist will also appeal to boy readers. As in Dork Diaries, the characters make up a wide range of diversity. And also like Dork Diaries, The Misadventures of Max Crumbly series is about embracing who you are and having a ton of fun along the way!
