Guided only by a flier for one of Calloway's shows--a small, blue poster that had mysteriously upset his mother shortly before she died--Bud sets off to track down his supposed dad, a man he's never laid eyes on. And, being 10, Bud-not-Buddy gets into all sorts of trouble along the way, barely escaping a monster-infested woodshed, stealing a vampire's car, and even getting tricked into "busting slob with a real live girl." Christopher Paul Curtis, author of The Watsons Go to Birmingham--1963, once again exhibits his skill for capturing the language and feel of an era and creates an authentic, touching, often hilarious voice in little Bud. (Ages 8 to 12) --Paul Hughes
The flyers were advertisements of a band, Herman E. Calloway and The Dusky Devastators of the Depression.
This book is very humorous and light-hearted at times, but it also reveals many important lessons about life, love, and family that all young readers need to learn.
Bud, Not Buddy is an award-winning book written by Christopher Paul Curtis that takes place during the Great Depression.
