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.
