Christopher Paul Curtis's alternately hilarious and deeply moving novel, winner of the Newbery Honor and the Coretta Scott King Honor, blends the fictional account of an African American family with the factual events of the violent summer of 1963. Fourth grader Kenny is an innocent and sincere narrator; his ingenuousness lends authenticity to the story and invites readers of all ages into his world, even as it changes before his eyes. Curtis is also the acclaimed author of Bud, Not Buddy, winner of the Newbery Medal. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
I purchased this book to help my son with his 7th grade ELA class that they were reading. It was a great book! Very funny and kept your attention.Published 7 days ago by KAM
The book may be excellent but how would I know since it's missing 3 chapters. Love how it skips from page 24 to page 153 for a few chapters then bounces to page 57. Outstanding!Published 9 days ago by TJ
