I didn't realize he had died.  I never read the book but I know my kids saw the movie.

As I wrote this I remembered the first time I read it I hated it .The book scared me.Now I know it was a reflection of the bitter nasty grenade throwing divorce my parents were having.Instead of Max coming home and seeing his home is always welcoming to him with milk and cookies I saw it as no one caring if he was there.

Later when my husband read it to our oldest and they loved it I saw and understood the real story.A favorite of all of us now.

No not really my brother loved the book back in the 80's though!  I never really got in to the book.  So sad that he died.

I never read it and neither have my kids. And the movie looked dumb in the previews.
