After Max arrives at 33 Himmel Street, Liesel is curious about the man in her basement but also  somewhat afraid of him. She begins to realize that they have much in common. They both have  nightmares, they both are fist-fighters, and they both have lost their families. They also share the  same view of Hans Hubermann, namely that he and his accordion are sources of safety. Liesel does  the best she can to bring the outside world to Max, describing the weather to him, bringing him snow,  and delivering presents to the foot of his bed when he falls ill. She continues to play with Rudy and  go to school, all while keeping Max a secret and listening to his stories about his past at night. Max,  too, loves stories and shares these with Liesel. Max also understands the power of words. For Liesel's birthday, he paints over the pages of  Mein  Kampf
