Max grapples with the outrageousness of divorced parents beginning to date — and other mysteries of evolution — in his third quirky notebook.

Welcome to Max’s book of inventions, experiments, comic strips, and random thoughts about school, the universe, evolution, and parents who definitely don’t act the way parents are supposed to act. Luckily for Max, he has a place to jot down his biggest questions and most amazing discoveries. This zany mix of comics, concoctions, and contraptions helps Max tells the story of his topsy-turvy life and how he comes to terms with a changing family.
