Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary


Maniac Magee is a folk story about a boy, a very excitable boy. One that can outrun dogs, hit a home run off the best pitcher in the neighborhood, tie a knot no one can undo. Kids gotta be a maniac, is what the folks in Two Mills say. Its also the story of how this boy, Jeffrey Lionel Maniac Magee, confronts racism in a small town, tries to find a home where there is none and attempts to soothe tensions between rival factions on the tough side of town. Presented as a folk tale, its the stuff of storytelling. The history of a kid, says Jerry Spinelli, is one part fact, two parts legend, and three parts snowball. And for this kid, four parts of fun. Maniac Magee won the 1991 Newbery Medal.
