Maniac many call him.
Finally finds home.

Took me a moment to think about it, but when I did I chose Mania Magee by Jerry Spinelli. It’s a book that one of my elder sisters first read to me when I was learning how to read chapter books way back in early elementary school. I have since read it every single year that I was in public schooling and the first few years of college.

  1. Maniac Magee was one of my favorites growing up too. I still have it on the bookshelf and can’t wait to share it with the Little Prince (he’s about to turn 14 months, so still a ways off.)
