Summary Jeffrey Magee is like any other child. However, at a far too young age, he is left alone in the world with nobody in the world except for his aunt and uncle - who won’t even talk to each other. He seizes his chance and runs away. He makes a legend of himself – Kissing buffaloes, playing football better than everyone, even Hands, and untying Cobble’s knot. Read the story of the orphan who became a legend in Maniac Magee.
Letter to the Author Dear Jerry Spinelli, 4-27-14 I have just finished Maniac Magee, and I have a few questions. What happened to Maniac afterwards? Did he do any more stunts, or did he lay down and live a normal life? Did he ever finish Encyclopedia A? Did he end up living with Amanda Beale until he was old enough to live on his own? Thank you for your time, Jack Michelini
