If every guest author that our school had come visit was as engaging as Mr. Curtis I would enjoy our assemblies more. He was a fantastic storyteller.
Bud, not Buddy is about an African American boy named Bud who is out on his own in the 1930s and in search of his father. Each year I read the book to my students and each year they really get into it.

Mr. Curtis is traveling around trying to get people excited about his new book, "The Mighty Miss Malone." It is a book that runs parallel with "Bud, not Buddy" as far as the time frame, some of the setting and a couple of the characters. I really liked it. It is hard for me sometimes to find books that I like to read that have girls as the lead character.
This wasn't a goal, but it was a big deal to me.
