Book Trailer Thursday: The Misadventures of Max Crumbly

Author the bestselling Dork Diaries, Rachel Renee Russell has created another upbeat series about the awkwardness of  being an outcast in middle school, beginning with The Misadventures of Max Crumbly: Locker Hero (Aladdin). In the trailer, an enthusiastic narrator describes Max’s greatest dreams (becoming a superhero) and embarrassments (getting stuffed in his locker). Over a notebook paper background, a free floating pencil illustrates Max’s mishaps in cartoony doodles. Middle schoolers will giggle at the drawings, which are both funny and relateable, and root for Max to find a way out of his locker. After the success of the Dork Diaries, Russell’s latest is sure to be a hit.
