Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli This is my first read aloud each year (for the past 20+ years) to my 5th graders. It is so much more than a children's novel. Adults will love the deep rich theme of love and respect for one another. I still cry at the end of Part 2 of the book.

Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli. Call Number: J FIC SPINELLI. After his parents die, Jeffrey Lionel Magee's life becomes legendary, as he accomplishes athletic and other feats which awe his contemporaries.

Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli

Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli I loved this book as a kid--our hero runs away from a broken home and finds a new family. Great handling of race relations.

When Jerry Spinelli was a kid, he wanted to grow up to be either a cowboy or a baseball player. Lucky for us he became a writer instead.    He grew up in rural Pennsylvania and went to college at Gettysburg College and Johns Hopkins University. He has published more than 25 books and has six children and 16 grandchildren.  Jerry Spinelli began writing when he was 16 — not much older than the hero of his book Maniac Magee.

Jerry Spinelli was the author of this book. He also wrote plenty more books such as Stargirl and Wringer.
