Max Crack is new in Piddown. He decides that a new town means a new beginning and resolves to embark on a series of quests, such as: * Make a new best friend * Win a trophy * Solve a mystery * Find hidden treasure. He meets Frankie on his first day in town (Quest No. 1: tick). Now all he has to do is win a trophy, solve a mystery and find hidden treasure...
The story is presented as Max's diary, and it's a visual feast: full of speech bubbles, doodles, asides, highlighted words, and crossed-out words. It's a stream of visual and verbal consciousness and captures the intriguingly chaotic mind of an 11-year-old perfectly.
