James Avery does a fabulous job narrating this story. You're hooked by the first page! Christopher Paul Curtis has a gift with words that will keep readers and non readers listening, AND following along with a hard copy of the book (eyes on text the entire time). Even my students who "hate" reading couldn't put their books down while listening to Mr. Avery read us this wonderful story. Bud, Not Buddy is a great story to use for teaching: point of view, figurative language, geography, the Great Depression, black history . . . . In the words of one of my students, "Everyone should read this book."

I always thought that the biggest trial in my life was my name, Naomi Guadalupe Zamora Outlaw, but little did I know that it was the least of my problems, or that someday I would live up to it.
