This book is da bomb.It's about a boy who's mother dies. He tries to look for his father and thinks his father is Hermeny Callaway. It turns out instead he finds he grandfather which is Hermeny Callaway and he finds out that this is his grandson Bud Caldwell and Bud is the first one to tell his grandfather that his daughter is dead who is Bud's mom.If you like books about mysteries, this is a good one to read.If you think that it is a bad book, think again.

I thought this book was pretty good. I think kids 9 and up would enjoy Bud, Not Buddy. The book was humorous and there was also a lot of info about events that happened during the Great Depression, which is when the book takes place.
