By Faber, Jules
Max Crack is new in Piddown. He decides that a new town means a new beginning and resolves to embark on a series of quests, such as: * Make a new best friend * Win a trophy * Solve a mystery * Find hidden treasure. He meets Frankie on his first day in town (Quest No. 1: tick). No...w all he has to do is win a trophy, solve a mystery and find hidden treasure...
