Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis

 In the exciting book, Bud, Not Buddy, the main characters are Bud, Mr. C and Mrs. Tomas. The main characters are the people who are a big part of the story.  Mr. Curtis, the author, writes this as a comedy.  It takes place during the depression era. 

Bud has a problem, a big problem.   His mom died and he never met his dad.  So he goes to a foster home.  He gets placed with a mean family.  He sleeps in their shed and gets attacked by hornets.  He runs away and finds Mr. C, or Herman E. Calloway.  He discovers that Mr. C is his grandpa.  Mr. C plays a bass, a humungous four stringed guitar.   His band members give Bud a recorder and a trumpet. 

I rate Bud, Not Buddy 5 out of 5 stars.
