Maxine is smart, quirky, and a bit of a misfit. One day, she receives a mysterious invitation to a meeting of the “Kooky Kids’ Club.”
Things are looking bright. It’s nice to finally have a real group of friends. Then Maxine’s teacher disappears.
Maxine doesn’t know what happened to her beloved teacher, or how she can help. But if anybody has the smarts to help Miss Thompson, it’s Maxine and the Kooky Kids’ Club…
This quirky chapter book is for the best kind of kids—the ones who are a little bit kooky!
I really enjoyed the last Robbie Yates book I reviewed and this one did not disappoint – in fact I think it may have been even better!

I think one of Robbie’s talents is being able to write in a way that young people will immediately identify with and this is especially evident here. The feeling of being left out, different, excluded can be so common place for children at school. This book shows how Maxine starts to overcome those feelings. I think the message – that our differences are the things that make us interesting and brilliant – is a great one for people to take away when reading this.
Another book I will be sharing with my ten year old – I know he will love it too!
