Edward the Crazy Man is a story of triumph over
misunderstanding. It is a touching and funny, humane, and dynamic
tale of one boy's will to help one man and to change perceptions
about homelessness and schizophrenia.
When Charlie was a boy, he would encounter a man on the streets
that everyone called the Crazy Man. But Charlie saw something in
him that others did not. Charlie saw the man's bright blue eyes
that glittered like stars and he loved the fantastical costumes
that the man concocted from things people threw away.
One night Charlie went through his own garage and carefully
chose things that he thought the Crazy Man might like. Charlie left
them out where the man would find them. The next day at the
crosswalk the class bully made fun of the Crazy Man. Charlie and
the bully began to argue, and Charlie was punched in the stomach.
As Charlie began to fall, someone snatched him from the path of a
speeding car. Charlie saw the Crazy Man, in a fabulous outfit made
from all the treasures that Charlie had left, disappear quickly
down the street. The Crazy Man had saved Charlie's life. But after
that day Charlie did not see the Crazy Man around his neighborhood
Charlie grows up and becomes a costume designer. He creates
marvelous outfits for famous people to wear. Walking home one
night, Charlie recognizes the Crazy Man, homeless on the street.
Wanting to do something for him, Charlie leaves a card with the
message, "I would like to help you -- trust me."
Weeks later Charlie gets his chance to help. The Crazy Man is
taken to the hospital, where they discover that he has an illness
that affects his brain. The police find Charlie's card and contact
him. Remembering the wonderful costumes the Crazy Man used to make,
Charlie offers "Edward" -- for that is his real name -- a job at
the costume factory.
When Edward begins to work, most people do not understand him
because he talks in loud voices to him-self and is very private.
After the famous rock star Krackerjack's luggage is lost at the
airport, Edward is just the man to design the new flamboyant,
extravagant costume -- but time is tight. Soon everyone has pitched
in and the costume is ready, just in time for the concert that
