    Story
    (89)

    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; about how no knot, no matter how snarled, would stay that way once he began to untie it. But the thing Maniac Magee is best known for is what he did for the kids from the East Side and those from the West Side.

    Craig says: "Excellent Middle School Story"
    "Terrific for FAMILY road trips!!!"

    Story
    If you could sum up Maniac Magee in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, moving, classic tale.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of Maniac's interactions with the old man.


    Any additional comments?

    Beautifully performed by Ms. Merkerson! My kids ask for it when we take a trip and they're entering their teens! Better than a DVD any day!!
