Series: The Secret Games of Maximus Todd

Rating: 0 vote(s).

Meet Maximus Todd! He's the kid who can't sit still. Max and his friends are on a camping trip at Camp Friendly Pines when he's stung by a wasp. Max gets a case of the Super Fidgets and devises a counting game to distract himself. If he loses, he will have to forfeit his campfire treats!

It's not easy being a kid. And Max discovers that his games don't always work out the way he wants them to. But no matter what, he has the love and understanding of his friends.

" is a perfect book for emergent readers who will be equally drawn in by the briskly paced plot and engaging, relatable characters."

- Lisa Doucet Atlantic Books Today

"Max’s ability to recognize when he is having an episode and his strategy for coping provides a positive role model...but ultimately it is the camping adventure itself...that make this book a definite hit for its intended audience."

- Lisa Doucet Atlantic Books Today

"Overall, Camping Chaos is a humorous, fun, and relatable book that would be a good addition to an inclusive teacher’s classroom library."

- CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"A worthwhile purchase, particularly for the target audience."

- School Library Journal
