Max Disaster: Alien Eraser To The Rescue (Max Disaster #1)

Summary:

Max has lots of ideas. Inventions, experiments, you name it and he's busy planning it! Want an alarm for your bedroom door? Got it covered. Need to get your brother to talk to you? That, too. The problem is Ms. Blodge, his teacher, doesn't like many of his school ideas ... and keeps confiscating the parts and pieces. But Max would never let her know about his army of alien erasers! He needed them too much!


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Kids will love (and relate to) all of Max's ideas, feelings, and adventures. They'll want an alien eraser army of their own.

Content Awareness Factors:

Be forewarned: there are detailed plans for experiments, including an exploding volcano.


Little Kid Reaction

Our daughter laughed her way through this book and finished it in a day. She kept running to us to read us excerpts from the Alien Eraser comics Max was creating.

Parent Reaction

This seemed a little odd to us, but Max and his alien erasers are harmless. We weren't sure that our daughter would relate to Max, as the undercurrent in the story is that Max's parents are separated. The experiments are great fun.

Type of Book:
This is a graphic novel for young readers.
Educational Themes:

This is a nice story for kids who are trying to deal with separation ... Max expresses his feelings, but also does it with humor. There is also a lot of learning packed into the book.
