by L. M. Nicodemo

illustrated by Graham Ross

A rhyming game keeps Max Todd’s fidgets at bay – unless frenemy Mandy Beth manages to trip him up!

Max Todd is the kid who can’t sit still – but for every case of the Super Fidgets, there is a game he can play to keep them under control and keep himself out of trouble.

In Max Todd Gets the Super Fidgets, Max tries to get through a day at school with the help of a rhyming game. But, when pesky Mandy Beth figures out what he’s up to, she becomes determined to trip him up.

Full colour illustrations and fun typography bring Max to life and make this book accessible to readers of all levels.

"The target audience will surely have no trouble relating to the storylines. The blend of fun graphics by Graham Ross, with varying sizes and designs of text in the quickly paced 96 pages, will be appealing to both beginning and reluctant readers.

The series is written by a teacher who clearly has insight into the mind of a child who feels the type of anxiety that Max does . . . these books will serve as inspiration to children facing the same difficulties with their own Super Fidgets."

"The book is a great beginning chapter book for young readers, and the use of large, bold fonts to exaggerate certain words and phrases ... makes it appealing to an elementary-age audience. ... the ratio of text to Graham Ross's illustrations is approximately 50:50 making Hyper to the Max a less intimidating read than many other chapter books. A fabulous addition to school and classroom libraries."
