In class we just finished Maniac Magee and I think the theme is journey because when Maniac was younger he left his Aunt Dot and Uncle Dan because they never talked so that is where the journey began. Next he ran everywhere and met Amanda Beale and borrowed a book and promised he would give it back. He lived at the zoo for quiote a while and one day he went to the little leauge baseball and met John McNabb. That is how Maniac become legendary. Another reason why I think thee theme is joureny because he lived with Amanda’s family but then left and started a new joureny. THen jourenys usually end going back home and that is actally what maniac did he went back to the Beale’s home. So that is why I think the theme is Journey.
