It is a valuable book dealing with such social issues as racism, homelessness, poverty while still keeping an optimistic tone of affectionate comedy. Bud goes through his difficult life of a foster child with an open mind, creating his list of survival rules. He is on a mission of finding his father...

Another good read for this age bracket (9 to 12) is a series of 4 books titled "Why Some Cats are Rascals." - Very inspiring and optimistic stories...

I liked this book becuase it was a wonderful story about history(the Great deppresion) and a boy trying to find out who he was. Or rather, who his father was. he ends up traveling with a band and finding more than he bargained for.

Format: Paperback
"Bud Not Buddy" is the story of a young boy in the Great Depression whose mother has died, leaving him with what he believes to be a clue to his unknown father's identity: a flyer for a band featuring bass player Herman Calloway. When Bud exhausts other options to finding a happy home, he listens to his mother's advice ("When one door closes, another one opens") and heads to Grand Rapids to find his father. Bud's naive nature and vivid imagination lead to many humorous moments and observations along the way. Readers find themselves constantly guessing about Herman Calloway's relationship to Bud and trying to put the artfully-inserted clues together. While Bud is surprised when he finds out the truth, he ends up learning a great deal about his mother, his past, human nature, and what it really means to belong. The book is an excellent introduction to the Great Depression, while at the same time interesting readers with a likeable character and excellent mystery.

I loved the Bud, Not Buddy book because I really liked the way Christofer Paul Curtis tells the story. He also describes well the characters. The only thing that I didn't like is that sometimes the book gets real boring... It starts talking about other things which they don't interest you...
I LOVED the ending of the book... I thought it was real sweet! When I started reading it I thought it was boring, til' I got to the ending which I loved. I thought that the part that he stays in his mothers room without knowing was realy sweet! I loved it! And I also thought really funny the part that he always says that his name is not Buddy, but yes Bud!!!
I think that 10 or 11 year old readers should read the book, and also they need to be really patient because the story goes really slow...
But I sugest the book for all types of people 'cause it teaches you a lot of things!

Format: Paperback
If you love mystery books, and at the same time fun books,read Bud-Not-Buddy. It is an enthusiastic book. It talkes about an orfan that faces very bad times. It includes a boy that tries to put a pencil in Bud`s nose, and a vey bad and evil vampire. But what Bud really wants is to find his father, that is a famos musician, but he just knows the name of the band, that is ""The Dusky Devators of Depression", and of course his father's name, that is Herman E. Calloway. Bud-Not-Buddy is a very funny book. This is one of Chistophers Paul Curtis famous book, that also has some parts of his other book, Bud Caldwell's Rules for having a funner Life and Making a Better Liar out of Yourself. Read Bud-Not-Buddy and never forget things about life.

I think that Bud, Not Buddy is a litle bit nice and has some parts that are mysteries. Bud is one boy that is 10 years old and lives in an orphanage. He ran away from the orphanage and from some houses that he 'lives'. I think that's it.
