It has been twenty years--and more than two million copies, eight foreign editions, and a popular Miramax feature film--since the world was introduced to this powerful story of a unique friendship between a troubled, oversized boy and the tiny, physically challenged genius who proves that courage comes in all sizes. This simple yet timeless story explores many themes, including bullying--an important topic in today's schools. Now we have a new edition to celebrate this poignant novel's success.
Thirty-two pages of new content offers: extensive Q&A with the Newbery Honor-winning author; letters between the author and fans; author's exclusive commentary on the film, THE MIGHTY, and the book's effect on a generation of readers; and the original text.
Perfect for teachers, librarians, and perennial fans, this anniversary edition is also a spectacular introduction for new readers. FREAK THE MIGHTY is sure to remain fresh, dramatic, and memorable for the next twenty years and beyond!
