Zucker, Jonny, Max Flash Mission 1: Game On. Pgs. 133. Darbycreek, 2013. $23.95. Language; G, Mature Content; G, Violence: PG
Max Flash has an affinity for daring escapes and video games. This makes him the perfect recruit for a top secret agent. His first mission sends him to the virtual world where Deezil, a super evil video character, is trying to take over the world. Will Max be able to succeed with no official training?
This hi-lo reader is designed for video games. The characters are one-dimensional and show little growth, which will hopefully show in future books. The story, however, is interesting enough to appeal to elementary school reluctant readers interested in action adventures.. EL. OPTIONAL.
