Adventures of One Up Max: Runic and the Crystal Cave
Lisa Shawver, author

Children/Young Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

Max loves sitting by the backdoor watching everything that goes on.  But, this morning, a blinding light zooms across the yard.  Then, he sees it, a strange looking critter.

Being a great watch-dog and the guardian of the yard, Max jumps into high gear after it.  When he's just about to catch the critter, a young dragon, it jumps into a wavy air portal.  Hot on his trail, Max leaps right in after it.

Zoomed to another world, Max encounters 100-foot vultures, groppers (super-long snakes with tiny arms and legs that crush their victims and razor sharp teeth that tear into flesh), killing trees, quicksand, and other things that make him cringe.

His only hope of getting home in one piece is with the help of the critter that got him there.

Amazing Book 

I give this book 5 Stars because it kept me wanting to know more about what Max would do next. This may be a kids book, but as an adult, I really enjoyed reading this book. I wonder what Max will get into next. I hope there will be more to come. And both my girl's age 11 & 15 loved reading about Max. Well done. Into the next adventure.

Bought a copy for his class

Such a cute book! Read it with my 8 yr old son and he loved it so much that we decided to buy a copy of it for his second grade classroom library.

*Update* We ordered another copy and as soon as it came he couldn't put it down. He is walking around reading it!

A Fun LIttle Book

This book is great for kids and adults alike. Children can learn about danger, trust, and friendship. I follow Max on Instagram, and it was great to be able to picture him as I read. A very enjoyable story!
