Maxwell's parents, were originally rival explores, and were always competing. One day, they gave up on the rivalry, and got married. They had 30 kids (Twenty Nine boys and one girl), and most of them grew up and left the house. The last two, Maxwell and Lilly were given special gifts. Lilly got a Globe, that could take her anywhere in the world, while Maxwell got a notebook that could write anything to life. They used these objects, to become spoilt and not do any work, so their parents sent them out to face the challenges of the world. Along the way, they met a hungry Beggar, who asked them for food. Maxwell played a trick, and gave him a mouldy apple. The Beggar, turned Lilly to stone, and they went to their uncle Egbar's farm. Egbar was annoyed with them, for what they did, but decided to help them. He said by heping people out, they would get starites, and enough starites could cure Lilly. Maxwell headed out, to find the starites, and cure Lilly. When he returned, it turned out the Beggar was their dad, in disguise, trying to teach Maxwell a leason. They forgived each other, and lived happily ever after. The adventure is continued, in Scribblenauts Unmasked.
After getting so many emails from fans, asking who is Maxwell, 5th cell decided to make a story.

This is the first Scribblenauts game, to have a Story It can be theorized, that this game comes before the other Scribblenauts games, seeing as Maxwell had the notebook in the others and in this one he had just got it.
