This storyboard does not have a description.
Ignorance breeds prejudice "And he told Maniac what he often imagined, lying in bed: The blacks sweeping across Hector one steaming summer night; torches, chains, blades, guns, war cries; marauding, looting, overrunning the West end; climbing in through smashed windows, doors, looking for whites, like Indians in the old days, Indians on a raid..."(Spinelli 152).
One of the main themes in Maniac Magee is Ignorance breeds prejudice which basically means not knowing about someone or something can bring up false facts about that something or someone. Jerry Spinelli likes to use this theme because it happens a lot of times in real life when we think something about someone that isn't really true. So this way we can learn not to think ugly about someone when we don't even really know them and are not in their footsteps.
Family Sticks together "He knew that finally, truly, at long last someone was calling him home"(Spinelli 184).
Another great theme in Manic Magee is Family sticks together. In the book Manic never really had a family and each new family he gets, they seem to not properer and start going down hill when Maniac gets there. So he thinks that there is no place for family for him so he likes to avoid open arms. But in the end family is family and families stick together. And in the end everything turns out well and know why, because of family.
