"This book picks up where we left Max at the end of book 1 (though it does recap for those who forgot). In this one he continues to try and retrieve his father's comic book from the hands of thieves at the school and stop them from making off with all the school's computers.

With a large font and lots of illustrations, this is a pretty quick read despite its size. The content itself is also pretty fluffy though definitely not boring. It's definitely aimed to entertain and get reluctant readers into a book. (The 3rd & 4th chapters were completely random and I got worried the entire book would be that but thankfully Max gets back to the plot right after his weird ramblings.) Max's improbable adventures and zany plans to stop the thieves are definitely memorable. Kids should like it. Adults will probably roll their eyes at it. But if this is the gateway that opens the door to the magic of reading for some kid, I'm all for it.

Notes on content: No language issues. No sexual content. Some events that probably would result in booboos in real life but the characters are almost cartoons and they seem ok. Also, some bathroom humor.

"Silliness ensues as we revisit Max Crumbly still trying to recover his dad's comic book while three thugs are vandalizing the middle school. Bumbling, idiotic thieves are after Max, but he has one thing on his mind...get that comic book. Of course, the logical thing would be to call the police, but with the help of his friend and computer genius, Erin, he's sure to get it all worked out.

The Misadventures of Max Crumbly: Middle School Mayhem is quite repetitive and overly slapstick(y). Not as much fun as the first or even Dork Diaries...I think this misses the mark, but on the other hand, kids will probably love it. Sigh.

" Man, I really thought this whole misadventure would be over!! Oh well, anything to make more books, I guess...anyway not bad, but I'd really like a series more like Dork Diarys! *sigh* oh well,not bad but I'd like to see more of middle school than the air vents. I like the book, don't get me wrong but I just expected more... )-= " said.

" 2.5Just as the previous book, full of Home Alone (School Alone??) scenes and little else. Really like the rap.Everything else was just...I don't know. I know I said I wouldn't read the sequel after not liking the first book, but I came across it related to my work so I gave it a shot. Can't say it was worth it. " said.
