'Hi everyone! I'm Max Crack and this awesome book is all about me and my quests and my best friend Frankie!

Buried treasure, new school, doodles, peanut butter and honey toast, best friends, horrible blobs, mysteries, Meddlyslop, spelling bees (hard words, harder words), more doodles, comics, World War Undies ... this book has it ALL.'

This book was awesome.

I honestly didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I did. I was hooked from the first page and I didn't want it to end.

I loved the way this amazing story was told. It was fun, wacky and ultimately very sweet. The way in which opportunity for growth and learning was woven into the story was absolutely beautiful

The characters in this book was so fun to follow. Their quests and friendship was the heart of this story. Watching them grow and learn about each other and themselves made for a truly great reading experience.

Now lets talk about the best aspect of this book; the layout.

This awesome book was so creatively designed, and completely entertaining. From the illustrations, the lists and the speech and thought bubbles, I can honestly say I have never read a book like this before.

I will admit it took me a few pages to get into the flow of the story as it was being told in so many different formats, but once  got my head around it I was completely engrossed.

Jules Faber has done a fantastic job with this book. It truly is one of the best Middle Grade books I have ever read.

Given how much I loved it, I can only image how much joy young readers are going to get from this book. I can easily see this book become a fast favourite in many homes.

The Quest Diaries Of Max Crack by Jules Faber is an absolute must have from all young readers.
