Be a good friend

Analysis of the Development of Theme
Max was nice to Freak which made them friends. They lived in a small, lonely town which made them the best of friends. Because Freak was small Max could carry him. "I pick up the handle to the American Flyer wagon and start pulling him over. It's really easy because he doesn't weigh much." Also, because Max has a learning disability Freak can teach him. "I put all my favorite words in alphabetical order, then put them in that box." Freak said. "Like a dictionary?" I asked
Reflection and Application of Theme
Pictures of Symbols in the Book
This ornithopter started their friendship. It is what made Max come outside of the down under. When he got it, it made Freak happy, he got in the wagon and Max towed him over to his house.
Grim is always... well grim. He made Max's life hard. When Max found Freak, it really lightened up his life. He was always mad about Killer Kane he never realized that Max was a good kid.
Freak's disability is a huge part of the story. Since Freak is small, Max can carry him easily. They couldn't go on fun quests with Freak on his shoulders if he was big.
