I recommend this book to people who like kids in books that go on long journeys. I said that because Bud goes on a long journey, in fact the whole book is the big adventure. I also recommend this book to people who liked the book The Watson's Go To Birmingham because that book is written by the same author. By the way, you can always read this book to get a little information about history and for fun.
My favorite character is Bud because he can make friends in no time with big people. I also like Bud because all the problems he gets in, he always gets out. Something unique about this book is that it has been awarded a Newberry Medal Award and a Coretta Scott King Award. Wow! This story reminded of me when my family and I had missed a train, right when we got there the train started to leave and we missed it, so we just went and watched a movie. My favorite part is almost at the end. If I tell you I will give away the book, so if you read this book you might find out what my favorite part is.
READ THIS BOOK! IT IS A GREAT BOOK!
