They also make sad copies of what is very important like when Freak and Max made it known about Freak the Mighty in school. We all love things like this; it symbolizes friendship and many other things.
The book cost less than the movie so people will be more willing to buy the book than the movie and be able to save money. Doesn’t everyone want to have some extra change to buy things like candy? The book cost about 7 dollars and the movie cost 12.95. If you add tax then you would save at least 5 dollars. Money like this can buy a lot of things. Not a ton but still a great variety.
