Publisher's Summary

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.

Maniac Magee

The Maniac Magee books is excelent for children who doesnt any experience of reading and comprehension in english But the book not include a guide of chapter. Audible have include the chapter guide in this book, its the only problem of the book, but my son really enjoyed the book.
