Customer Reviews for Hachette Book Group, USA Maniac Magee

Hachette Book Group, USA Maniac Magee

He wasn't born with the name Maniac Magee. He came into this world named Jeffrey Lionel Magee, but when his parents died and his life changed, so did his name. And Maniac Magee became a legend. Even today kids talk about how fast he could run; about how he hit an inside-the-park "frog" homer; how no knot, no matter how snarled, would stay that way once he began to untie it. But the thing Mania Magee is best known for is what he did for the kids from the East Side and those from the West Side. He was special all right, and this is his story, and it's a story that is very careful not to let the facts get mixed up with the truth. Recommended for ages 8 to 12. The 1991 Newbery Medal winner.

I absolutely love this book. We are using it in our 5th grade inclusion class and it is generating alot of discussion among ALL of the kids. This is one that each person, no matter their reading level, can draw something from.
