The notepad is a book that was given to maxwell by an old man. It turned into a black hole and brought him to Scribblenauts Land. In scribblenauts land, the notepad can create ANYTHING! In Scribblenauts, Maxwell could create anything he wanted using it to find starites, which were sopposedly the only thing that could get him back home. They did not, but the starites did make him a scribblenaut. Since that, maxwell likes it in scribblenauts land.
