Maniac Magee Chapter 6 Summary

  • Next up: the Pickwells.
  • Maniac shows up for dinner with the Pickwells—along with all ten of their kids, the baby, the grandparents, the great-grandfather and a random taxi driver who just needed a hand.
  • Why? Who knows? Who invited him? Who knows?
  • Not a whole lot happens at this dinner, but Maniac gets a wholesome meal and finds a safe place where he'll always be welcome.
