Bud Not Buddy

Great child appropriate book of a young African American on the run. Has humor and talks about serious issues. Like the KKK for example. Great book.

A second Newbery for C. P. Curtis

When I read this book last fall, I knew it was a winner. Bud, not Buddy, is an unforgettable character. The tale of a young boy who doesn't let the circumstances of being black during the Depression keep him down is as pertinent today as it was then. It's message is if you have a dream & are willing to work to make it happen, you can rise above even the most humble beginnings and it's told with humor and hope.

A great book for kids or adults.

Christopher Curtis's first book "The Watsons go to Birmingham-1963" won a Newberry Award. This book is even better.The story is about a young man growing up in Flint, MI. during the Depression. Bud is an orphan during some very tough times. Kids will be entertained by his rules for a happy life. And everyone will smile as he describes Bud drinking a bottle of soda. It is both touching and humorous. I would highly recommend this book to students.
