As the first book ever to win a Newbery Medal and the Coretta Scott King Author Award, Bud, Not Buddy is a classic that combines humor and history to create a story full of heart. Author Christopher Paul Curtis is also the author of the Watsons Go To Birmingham 1963. Both novels draw from Curtis’ own life, as a young boy growing up in Flint, Michigan to his eventual work at an assembly line in Flint. The personal aspect of these books creates an even richer tapestry of detail and emotion.
While Bud Caldwell’s life may seem trying, having no mother and not sure of where his father is, Bud has spirit, creativity and enthusiasm that keeps him moving. Growing up in Flint, Michigan during the year 1936, Bud only has a few possessions to his name but they’re priceless. For one, he has a suitcase filled with secret treasures. He also has a book that he penned himself, titled Bud Caldwell’s Rules and Things for Having a Funner Life. But most importantly, he has flyers for a band that his father was in. With these flyers, Bud embarks on an adventure through both a world filled with jazz, but also a world plagued by the Great Depression. Bud’s charm and sense of humor helps carry him through it all.
