"It's funny how ideas are, in a lot of ways they're just like seeds. Both of them start real, real small and then... woop, zoop, sloop... before you can say Jack Robinson, they've gone and grown a lot bigger than you ever thought they could." So figures scrappy 10-year-old philosopher Bud--"not Buddy"--Caldwell, an orphan on the run from abusive foster homes and Hoovervilles in 1930s Michigan. And the idea that's planted itself in his head is that Herman E. Calloway, standup-bass player for the Dusky Devastators of the Depression, is his father.
Guided only by a flier for one of Calloway's shows--a small, blue poster that had mysteriously upset his mother shortly before she died--Bud sets off to track down his supposed dad, a man he's never laid eyes on. And, being 10, Bud-not-Buddy gets into all sorts of trouble along the way, barely escaping a monster-infested woodshed, stealing a vampire's car, and even getting tricked into "busting slob with a real live girl." Christopher Paul Curtis, author of The Watsons Go to Birmingham--1963, once again exhibits his skill for capturing the language and feel of an era and creates an authentic, touching, often hilarious voice in little Bud. (Ages 8 to 12) --Paul Hughes -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.
"This is a fast paced, tightly plotted story, which deserves promotion, especially with boys" Books for Keeps -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
The Smugglers is a exciting book that mystifies you by having things happen that you never expected would happen. It is about a boy in his late teens who is sailing with his father on a ship with five men he barley knows. The ship he is on was once a ship used for smuggling and people say that the ship will practically curse you if you don't use the ship for smuggling. While on the ship, he discovers that some people are going to smuggle goods from France and decides to go catch them. When he gets there ,he discovers something about who the smugglers are that never accord to him and will surprise you. Now he needs to find a way to get out of a heap of trouble and not disappoint his father. In this book , I think the second biggest moment , (I can't tell you the biggest moment or I'll give the book away,) is when John is in the bottom of the boat and somebody puts their hand on his shoulder and tells him that the person he would least suspect on the ship wants to kill him. John doesn't have any idea who the person giving him the warning is. This exciting book should be read by anybody interested in adventure books and I give this book two big thumbs up!
