Maniac Magee Chapter 5 Summary
- Later on that first day, at 803 Oriole Street, high school kids are being high school kids and bullying someone younger and weaker.
- See, 803 Oriole Street is the home of Finsterwald.
- Yup, you know Finsterwald—he's the old scary guy in the old scary house who's been terrorizing kids for generations.
- Every kid in town is scared of Finsterwald. Every kid except—you guessed it—Maniac.
- Anyway, these high school kids are dumping some poor ten-year-old over into Finsterwald's yard, and Maniac rescues him.
- Slowly but surely, the legend grows.
