Edward the "Crazy Man" is a touching, funny, and humane tale of one boy's efforts to help one man and change perceptions about homelessness and schizophrenia. Everyone called him "the Crazy Man." But Charlie loved the sparkling blue eyes and fantastic outfits of this strange man on the street. One day Charlie overheard another kid making fun of the Crazy Man and a fight broke out. Charlie was punched and fell into the path of an oncoming car, but just in time he was snatched out of the way by the Crazy Man. Years later, Charlie gets the chance to repay the Crazy Man. He hires Edward--the man's real name--as a designer at his costume factory, and Edward's creativity saves the day. A brief afterword by the author engages children in the real-life stories of others like Edward.
