Our class finished the Book known has “Maniac Magee” today!
Im here to tell you what i thing the theme of the book was. Just thinking about the book I think that Maniac meets a lot of people and becomes friends with most of them so i think Friendship! I think that it was friendship mostly because Maniac makes friends in the book such as Grayson, Amanda, and “surprisingly” Mars Bar. Maniac makes these friends all in different ways too. Grayson was met at the zoo when Maniac was with the buffilos and Amanda was at school when Maniac asked for a book and also Mars Bar was a friend after Maniac showed him the East end. That was what I thought my theme was. I loved this book too.
One part I was affected by was Grayson’s death. His death was sad for Maniac because he was alone again. He and Grayson were friends that got along in the story too. To me I was really affected because Grayson helped Maniac through most of part 2 of the story.
Maniac’s life in the story was pretty good at first but though the story it gets worst from my veiw. In the story Maniac or Jeffery Magee was a orphan at a young age. His parents had died to a crash. He went to live with his uncle and aunt. They didn’t like each other so one night Maniac ran away from them. He was seen by people though the book includung Amanda, Pickwells, and McNab.
His life still wasn’t good he always ran around but one day he was being chased by the “Cobras” and he ran all the way to the East End. The East End was were Blacks were. Once he was there he was approached by Mars Bars who was very rude. He would follow Maniac and yell “WERE YOU GOING!?” He was very mean. Mars Bars tried to steal a book that Amanda threw at Maniac when she was late for class. Mars Bars ripped a page out and then Amanda came. Mars Bars blamed Maniac but Amanda didn’t belive him and then Mars Bars went away. Maniac stayed with Amanda’s family and he stayed there along time. He then was told to leave by a man on a hot day. Amanda told him to try Cobble’s Knot. He did try he sat there for along time and Finally did it and he untied it. He walked in the middle of the street walking and left town.
i will come on the trip because orangutans are a cool creature because they act almost just like us and that is cool that people wake up early just to find them I will also come because they they are flexible on the trees and that’s why I will come
My reaction after the school scene with the police I was very weirded out because what kind of people do that to a school full of kids? I also thought that that was cool that Hanna was able to trip the teacher so everything was saved because of her.
I believe after the research I have learned about America I think that America was Conquered because of the Spanish exploration mostly because they killed and Conqered most of the land to sell to others also Christopher Columbus would cut of natives hands if they didn’t have enough gold that is my reason that America was contoured.
I think that they did mean for this to happen to smith because the men didn’t like smith has a leader because of the rules he had and they didn’t like the natives so they finally came to injur smith so he couldn’t lead them.
Reverend hunt taught sameul he had to move on even though he has had a hard life with his mom’s death and he told Samuel to move on and Samuel did but now that reverend hunt is dead he has to move on once again.
My reaction when the fire started was surprised because who would attack the settlers and why would they do that?
The words are stronger than a weapon because Samuel can talk to Indians so he won’t get hurt by the Indians or other people that know the language.
