  • Bud, Not Buddy

    Story
    (99)

    Bud, Not Buddy, a Newbery Medal winner, is full of laugh-out-loud humor and wonderful characters, hitting the high notes of jazz and sounding the deeper tones of the Great Depression.

    Robert says: "Bud, Not Buddy"
    "A laugh-out-loud experience"
    Overall

    Bud, not Buddy had both my 11-year-old son and me laughing out loud. Bud's overactive imagination gets him into some wild antics, not to mention some dangerous experiences. His fears, vampires and monsters that are able to do illogical feats, resonated with those of my son, and made him laugh at their absurdity. The story also offered a great launching point for discussions on the impact of the Great Depression, as well as racism and segregation in the USA. The author/reader has a great voice that brings each of the characters to life.

    Story

    Born poor and hydrocephalic, Arnold Spirit survives brain surgery. But his enormous skull, lopsided eyes, profound stuttering, and frequent seizures target him for abuse on his Indian reservation. Protected by a formidable friend, the book-loving artist survives childhood. And then - convinced his future lies off the rez - the bright 14-year-old enrolls in an all-white high school 22 miles away.

    FanB14 says: "Absolutely Entertaining Memoir"
    "Looking for more by Sherman Alexie"
    Overall

    My 12-year old son has now listened to this book some 6 times. He loves Sherman Alexie's voice so much that we regulary check to see if the he has recorded any of this other books. CBC has a great podcast interviewing the author which is a great complement to the book.
