    Meet Maxwell Kane, narrator of Freak the Mighty. He's a timid soul stuck in the body of a teenage giant with size 14 shoes. Haunted by a dark secret in his past, he hides out in his basement room, avoiding the world. But when a new kid moves in next door Max's life changes forever. The two outcasts form the "normal" world team up to become "Freak the Mighty".

    the teach says: "A Mighty book for fifth graders"
    "Great story and narration for tweens/young teens!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Freak the Mighty to be better than the print version?

    I listened to this story with my son, who has LD and has difficulty reading books in print, but loves audio books. He thought this was the best book he's ever read and profoundly connected with the characters. He was able to analyze the book for a school project and found it to be easier because he understood the book so well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Freak the Mighty?

    My son loved the part where Freak and Max take on the bullies and then later Killer Kane.


    What does Eldon Henson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Eldon Henson's narration was exactly what we wanted for this story. He was perfect as Max and absolutely brought the story alive for my son.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, because we wanted to talk about it after a few chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd recommend following up with the movie, "The Mighty" and talk about how the book and then compare the two.
