An example on pages 39-40 is…“Freak is still holding tight to my shoulders and when they ask for his name, he says, “ We’re Freak the Mighty, that’s who we are. We’re nine feet, in case you haven’t noticed.” “ That’s how it started, really, how we go to be Freak the Mighty, slaying dragons and fools and walking high above the world.” Supporting Evidence 1 *the quote is telling me that Max and Freak’s friendship is getting stronger
On page 87, the author said….“ And I swear on the dictionary, if Freak ever tries to eat American chop suey again, I’ll dump it on his head or something” Supporting Evidence 2 *The quote tells me that Max wants to protect Freak
An example on page 78 is… “How’s this for an example” Freak is saying. “ Sometimes we’re nine feet tall, and strong enough to walk through walls. Sometimes we fight gangs. Sometimes we find treasure. Sometimes we slay dragons and drink from the Holy Grail!” Mrs. Donelli is backing up to her desk and she says, “ Oh, my that’s very interesting, I’m sure, but could you both just sit down?” “ But Freak is riding me like he’s the jockey and I’m the horse, he’s steering me around the class room, showing off. He’s raising his fist and punching the air and going, “ Freak the Mighty! Freak the Mighty!” Supporting Evidence 3 * The quote is telling me that Max and Freak are best friends now
The theme is …. Friendship is family, they are always there for you, and they help you out in hard times. Theme
