The theme of " The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" is don't jump to conclusions because it can lead to destruction. One piece of evidence that supports this theme is when Les Goodman tries to turn on his car but it won't start. He gets out of his car and his car turns on. Then everyone starts blaming him. Another piece of evidence is was Steve was trying to talk to Les Goodman and Charlie says it might be him because he remembered Steve's wife was saying that Steve had been spending hours working an a radio.Then everyone starts accusing him. My last piece of evidence was when Charlie and everyone see this mysterious figure walking up. Steve doesn't want to shoot and Charlie gets scared and he grabs the gun that Steve's friend gave Steve and Charlie shoots the figure. Everyone starts running up and finds out that Charlie shot Peter. Everyone turns to him and starts blaming him for all the things that have happened. Charlie was scared and he blamed Steve's kid Tommy for all the things that have happened. Everyone starts thinking that it is Tommy. That is why the theme is don't jump to conclusions because it can lead to destruction.
