Lesson Transcript
Instructor: Kerry Gray

Kerry has been a teacher and an administrator for more than twenty years. She has a Master of Education degree.

In Chapter 10 of the Rodman Philbrick novel, 'Freak the Mighty', Kevin thinks of another adventure. This lesson will take a look at what happens on this adventure.

The Next Adventure

In Chapter 10 of the Rodman Philbrick novel Freak the Mighty, Kevin takes Max on a treasure hunt. Little did they know that it would lead to saving a ''damsel in distress.'' Are Max and Kevin brave enough to face a real adventure?

Max keeps growing over the summer and is getting some muscle from carrying ''poor Kevin'' around, as Grim calls him. It annoys Max when people say ''poor Kevin.'' Can't they see how smart Kevin is? Max thinks Grim can be okay sometimes, but he acts like he knows everything, and he doesn't.

Max is hanging out in his room listening to music with headphones on when Kevin appears out of nowhere ready to go on a quest. Max is relieved to hear that this one does not involve walking.

Freak tells Max that he has identified treasure in the storm drain. They will have to wait until optimum (most advantageous) darkness at 3 A.M. so that no one will see them, and they must dress in black and cover their faces in soot. As they do not have a fireplace and have difficulty acquiring soot, Kevin and Max decide that rubbing dirt on their faces will work just as well. Max does not have a black shirt so Kevin offers to bring him one.

Max tries to go to sleep, but knowing he has to get up with his alarm in the middle of the night to hunt for treasure gets in his way.
