Great book about a boy who considers himself to be a "butthead" but is large and powerful, and a small boy who is a genius. Together the two become Freak the Mighty and go on quests while dealing with the harsh realities of their lives.

My students loved this book. It had action and the characters they could relate to because of their personalities. I look forward to teaching it again and using the sequel, Max the Mighty with the same group of kids.
