Annotation: Maniac Magee comes home! Little, Brown and Company takes great pleasure and pride in announcing that, effective immediately, we will be the sole publisher of the paperback edition of Jerry Spinelli's classic Newbery Medal winner, Maniac Magee. It has been eight years since Maniac Magee won both the prestigious Boston Globe-Horn Book Award and the Newbery Medal, and its popularity among young readers remains undiminished. The story of a boy who finds himself when he runs away from an intolerable situation continues to reverberate with humor and truth.

To celebrate the publication of the paperback edition of Maniac Magee, we have decided to repackage the other wildly popular Spinelli novels on our list. Look for new covers on Space Station Seventh Grade, Jason and Marceline, and Who Put That Hair in My Toothbrush? These new covers will attract a whole new generation to the novels of one of the most engaging talents writing for young people today.
