Book review: Max and the Millions

Written by Ross Montgomery
Available from Amazon
Ages: 5–14

Reviewed by Ollie (11) who is moderately deaf and wears hearing aids.


"I loved this book! The story is about Max and his roommate Sasha and how they rescue millions of tiny people that the school caretaker Mr Darrow invented. But Mr Pitt, the school headmaster, thinks they’re rubbish and tries to destroy Mr Darrow’s creations.

My favourite part of the story was when the bin bags were swapped over! Mr Pitt thought he was stamping on the bag Max and Sasha were trying to rescue with the tiny people in it but in fact the bag he took was filled with old sour milk jar. Mr Pitt stamped all over them and ended up covered in rotten milk!

It was great to read about a character who is deaf. The issues that Max experiences with hearing aids and with other people are very accurate."
