Description

Meet Marvin, a lovable monster with a twelve-stringed baby fang guitar, a rambunctious case of ADHD, emotions that sometimes overwhelm him (and others), and a diary to record it all. While Marvin got it together in Marvin's Monster Diary: ADHD Attacks, his lab partner Lyssa's emotional roller coaster is a bit out of control. Can he help her—and win the Science Scare-Fair—before she explodes?

In the same humorous spirit of Diary of a Wimpy Kid comes Marvin's Monster Diary: ADHD Emotion Explosion Using the "monstercam" and "ST4" techniques developed by Dr. Raun Melmed of the Melmed Center in Arizona, Marvin's Monster Diary: ADHD Emotion Explosion teaches kids how to be mindful, observe their surroundings, and take time to think about their actions. Marvin's hilarious doodles and diary entries chronicle his delightful adventures, misadventures, and eventual triumph in a funny, relatable way. It's the series on ADHD that kids will actually want to read! 

Marvin's Monster Diary: ADHD Emotion Explosion also includes a resource section to help parents and teachers implement Dr. Melmed’s methods, plus ST4 badge reminders that kids can remove, color, and place around the house.
