This middle grade series has got to be one of my favorites. I mean, not to hurt Platte's feeling cause Harry Potter will always be at the top, but this one is a close second. Definitely worth 5 stars in my book.

In 'Good Ogre', Max and his friends must save the world again.... for the third time. Through all of the world saving and hero playing Max realizes that having friends is pretty important. More important than being a powerful wizard or being the son of the most powerful sorcerer that has

So with the wizard tower destroyed and Rezor Dreadmoor gone, things have pretty much gone back to normal, Max and Friends have returned to Madison and for Max things have become depressingly like what they used to be. He may be the most powerful wizard in the three realms, but on Techrus (that is... Earth), he's nothing more than a chubby kid that the wrestling team habitually picks on. So when a new kid shows up in school claiming the people of Magrus want their savior to return to them and tha ...more

In the magical realm that lies between our everyday world and the shadow realm, a middle-school aged ogre named Dwaine worries that his low score on an evil aptitude test may doom him to a career as a weapons tester. Imagine his surprise when the dark lord, the Maelshadow himself, offers him a job. Apparently, there's something only a relatively good person can do, but that Maelshadow needs done in order to complete his conquest of the Techrus. So, he transforms Dwaine the ogre into Wayne the ni ...more

This is the 3rd and last book of a trilogy series about a boy named Max Spencer and how he is actually a wizard and “the chosen one” and he goes on these crazy adventures.When i saw the first book the title read Bad Unicorn. I was curious of what the book was about so i read the back and was hooked. My brother was the one who recommended me the trilogy and i'm glad he did. This trilogy was very funny, action filled, and suspenseful. The main villain in this book is a wizard who rules and entire ...more

This trilogy is such fun! Yeah, it is young adult with hit you over the head moral lessons—-but so entertaining and amusing.
Max and Co. make it back home. However, Max misses being powerful, and ends up dragging his friends, plus the cosplay group, back into the evil dimension. Really, who could not be enchanted by a squirrel army?

Great series!

It can be really hard to return to normal life in the Techrus after being an amazing wizard and saving the world in the Magrus, at least, that's what Max is discovering. Getting picked on by bullies and failing the rope climb just seems extra humiliating. So when a guy named Dwayne arrives from the Magrus with a portal and claims they need Max back, Max is more than willing to heed the call. Sarah and Dirk tell him to use some caution and think things over, but Max is done with being a loser. Of ...more

And the final volume of the trilogy is read in the same way as the first reading of the other two - in one long stretch on the couch, after my bedtime has passed. Wonderful!

The beginning of this book was interesting for me. It felt like it was a slow build to get into the story itself but I felt that on page 50 without realising I was that far in, so ignore me. There were a lot of new characters in this book and I did find myself a little overwhelmed to start with but it makes sense, since we do

This has been one of my favorite series in a while, so it is no surprise that I really liked this book about a misfit wizard and his unlikely band of heroes. I'm not a big gamer (okay so I'm not a gamer in any way computer or role play), but these stories are so awesomely bizarre, and the characters so quirky and fun, that I almost wish I were.

Platte does a great job of combining the real world with the imagined, making them blend seamlessly into the story with ease. I get lost in these books, a

I can not wait for this book to come out. i have thoroughly enjoyed Max's adventures thus far and I am both curious and excited to see how they end up. April 7th just seems so far away... At least it will still give me time to re-read the first two. ...more

Funny fantasy novel

Read this trilogy with my 10 and 13 year olds. They both enjoyed the humor and all the pop culture references.
