How is Freak the Mighty different from most books?
It's two main characters are crippled opposites; one is extremely smart, but physically crippled and cannot walk, and the other is large and physically healthy, lacking intelligence. In the book these two friends endure a period of insecurity in their lives, and, after meeting each other, form a friendship like no other. After several adventures, Freak, the crippled boy, begins to ride on Mighty's, the slow boy, shoulders, thus calling themselves "Freak the Mighty"

two settings in the book freak the mighty are on maxs and kevins street and the down under
In the book Max promises 2 Grim that since his father is now on parole he will not go outside anymore or somewhere far away anymore!
the conflict is that max has a mental disability and freak has a physical disability. freak helps max face his disability and teaches him how to read and write. freak dies so his problem isn't exactly resolved.
1.i never had a brain until freak came along and let me borrow his for a while -Maxwell Kane 2.nothings a drag kid -Loretta Lee
he nocks on the cellar window and says somthings like "wake up beast there are dragons to slay and fair madens to save"
Max's punishment is his dad going to jail for a second time and this time for life.
Coming of age because he went from a kid with "no brain" to a kid who writes a book
The problems were that two normal kids were getting teased for their size or disabilities and they sorted it out by proving everyone that you cant judge anyone because of their size.
In the story Freak the Mighty Freak known as Max has a disease called Morquio Syndrome
Freak was a cripple in the book Freak the Mighty. he has morquio syndrom. :_(
It is called Max the mighty I read freak the mighty for my reading class and i really liked it i also saw the movie
He died near the end because his heart got to big for his body (Morquio syndrome). Freak died at the end of the book.
im not exactly sure but i think it was like in 1990 im not 100% sure but i absolutly adore that book i cryed wen freak died :'( you should go on youtube and look up the mighty and that's the movie for freak the mighty....i also cryed in the end XD
Morquio Syndrome is the disease that Frek had. It cause the insides of our body to grow while the outside doesnt. People who have the disease usually die at an early age as Freak did.
The same things are Kevin and Max both want eachothers "skills" and Both are sad and affective.
i can tell u what happend at the end and what happens is that that the big guy mite get beat up buy gangsters
she was a friend of maxs dad and she helped max get away form his dad but he hurt her so Kevin came and saved max
1) Kevin's dictionary. Kevin's dictionary is not only a book, but it's also Kevin's favorite book. It's a symbol of Kevin's knowledge and desire to express his knowledge throughout the book. 2) Kevin's squirt gun filled with "sulphuric acid." It shows that Max and Kevin's friendship is so strong th…at Kevin will disobey his mother and go try to save Max instead of waiting in the car. 3) Blade's blade. (Tony D's knife). It's a symbol of fear, because he waves it around just to scare people. 4) The blank journal that Freak gave to Max to write down their adventures in. It is a symbol of remembrance because Freak gave it to him right before he died. 5) I'm sorry, but I can't think of a 5th symbol. FIGURE IT OUT YOURSELVES ( Full Answer )

Freak is the nik-name of Kevin who is Max's best friend.He invented "Freak the Mighty" nik-name for both of them because together they are really mighty; Kevin, the small brainy kid and Max, the big strong guy.

Maxwell is Grim and Grams Grandson, He is the main character.His Dad is in jail, on parole depending on where you are int he book.Maxwell is a very tall,not so-smart, or athletic kid, who's nickname was Kicker since he was a rowdy child in daycare.

Yes i would recommend this book to a friend because it shows a strong friendship and is also really sad.

Because she thought it wouldn't be fair A Father tied his own son on a chair if he said he loved him. And because Loretta knew Kenny kane's plan was to escape with Maxwell, so she knew it was bad and saved Max.
