The third chapter ("American Flyer") of Freak the Mighty opens with Max daydreaming in his basement bedroom--"the down under." Kevin has scared him by referring to him as "earthling." Max has been called many names because of his unusual size, he muses, but never "earthling." Feeling a bit claustrophobic in the down under, Max retreats to the back yard, where he sees Kevin "whacking at that crummy tree." Max makes things easier for Kevin by plucking a "plastic bird" from the tree. Kevin calls it an "ornithopter." Max tows the American Flyer wagon on which Kevin is sitting back to his house and invites him to explore the down under. From here, the unusual friendship of Freak the Mighty blossoms.
