Bud Not Buddy Literature Unit

By Christopher Paul Curtis

Bud Caldwell’s mother died when he was just six-years-old. While bouncing between foster care and the Home, he hasn’t had much to guide him except for a book he has written himself called Bud Caldwell’s Rules and Things for Having a Funner Life and Making a Better Liar Out of Yourself. These important life lessons have helped him survive as an orphan during the Great Depression. However, even a tough kid like Bud knows when he is facing a fight that he just can’t win. While spending the night locked in an outdoor shed, he learns that the only way to survive the abuse from his new foster family is to run away.

Although his mother didn’t leave Bud much, she did leave him a message that will help him find his father. Bud is sure that his father is the friendly man holding up that giant fiddle on the flyers of Herman E. Calloway and his band, The Dusky Devastators of the Depression. Why else would his momma have saved all of those special papers?

Once Bud’s dream of finding his father grows as big as a mighty maple tree, nothing can stop him. He sets out on a journey across the state of Michigan with only a battered suitcase full of a few simple treasures. He faces fear, hunger, vampires, and hornets in his adventure. Luckily, some good-hearted strangers help him along the way.

Bud will capture the hearts of readers as they follow him on his journey to find his family. While portraying the sorrowful tones of the Great Depression, Bud, Not Buddy is an inspirational tale of triumph through hardships.
