Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli

Well, honestly the more books I read by this author the less impressed I am. I just don't get why it was a Newberry book???

This was an unusual book, like most of the books he writes. It just didn't quite get deep enough to really grab you and teach you something...I guess a good word for this book is "shallow".

Skip it...
Healing book

Was this the one about the boy who ran on the railroad tracks? Or was that the other one......

Yep running on the railroad tracks and running all over town, black side, white side and sleeping with the buffalo at the zoo.
