Transcript of Bud not Buddy

Bud, Not Buddy
Character
Physical description, challenge reaction, and motivation

I can infer that Bud is a boy because Bud is a boy's name. I can infer that Bud is slim because I know he's in an orphanage and I know back then if you were in an orphanage you weren't treated very well so I'm guessing he's slim. I can infer Bud reacts to a challenge by fighting because I know when you slap someone you are fighting them. I can infer that Bud's motivation of fighting is Todd because I know if someone stuck a Ticonderoga pencil up my nose I'd be really mad!

" It's Bud, not Buddy ma'am." Pg. 2

" Foster home." Pg. 3

" I swung as hard as I could at Todd's big balloon head." Pg. 13

"I wasn't about to let anybody call me Buddy and stick a pencil up my nose all the way up to the R." Pg. 13
Setting
Time (past, present, or future), Location

I can infer that the setting is in the past because I know that when kids get paddled they are probably from the past because we don't do that anymore. I can infer that the setting is in the past because I know the Great Depression was in the past. I can infer that the location is in the house because there is usually a kitchen in a house. I can infer that the location is the house because they have a shed and houses usually have sheds.

"… or somebody was about to get paddled." Pg. 1

" Herman E. Calloway and Dusky Devastators of the Depression!!!!!!" Pg. 7

" ...slid way under the kitchen table!" Pg. 19

"… vampire bats in the shed" Pg. 18
Bud, Not Buddy
Christopher Paul Curtis

Character
I infer Bud hates his foster home , likes running away, and also likes his friends. He hates his foster home because his brother beats him up a lot and Buds foster parents believe everything that Buds foster brother says and nothing Bud says. So Bud gets in trouble a lot. Bud likes running away because everyone is mean to him and Bud likes to be "free". He likes his friends because Bugs (a boy) takes care of Bud a lot and cares for Bud when he is homeless. He likes Jerry because he was Buds only friend in the orphanage. Here are the quotes:

"gee home is just where I wanted to be , This crappy foster home sucks!" pg. 19


"Being on the lam is a whole lot of fun!"
pg.25


"Jerry didn’t look sad anymore so I went to pack up , Even though it was me getting in a lot of trouble , I still felt bad for him though." pg.3


My background knowledge is if you lived at a place where everyone was mean to you, you probably would not like it either.

Plot
Solution

I can infer that the solution is that Bud uses the old flyers his mom gave him when he was six to find his dad. I know that if I were in Bud's shoes, I would use flyers because they have a lot of pictures and contact information to find people.

" ...then, in the middle of the flyer was a blurry picture of the man I have a real good suspicion. I've never met him, but I'm sure he's my father." Pg. 7

" Herman E. Calloway and Dusky Devastators of the Depression!!!!!!" Pg. 7

"'It looks like Herman might be your grandfather." Pg. 213

" I remember Momma bringing this flyer with her when she came home from work one day, I remember because she got very upset when she put it on the supper table..." Pg. 7
I infer Bud hates his foster home , likes running away, and also likes his friends. He hates his foster home because his brother beats him up a lot and Buds foster parents believe everything that Buds foster brother says and nothing Bud says. So Bud gets in trouble a lot.

Getting in a lot of trouble , II still felt bad for him."


My background knowledge is if you lived at a place where everyone was mean to you, you probably would not like it either.

I infer that the rising action is that Bud had the stones that told if Herman was his dad or not. Bud kept trying to give them to Herman to look at but they kept thinking that he stole them. I infer that the Climax is, Bud gives the rocks that say dates of Buds birth on them to Herman. Herman looks at them. I infer that the falling action is, Mr. Jimmy says to Bud that Herman is not is dad. Here are the quotes that support it:

“He reached for the rocks, and for some reason I let him take them.”

“Flint, Michigan, August eighth, 1911.”

“Mr. Jimmy said” Bud, That’s enough. ” “Herman is NOT your father.”


My background knowledge is that there is a very slim chance that you would find your dad in a very big area called Chicago.

I infer that an event in the story is, at the library because this event helped Bud find his dad. Which is the solution, Bud finds his dad. Miss Hill (the librarian) gave Bud a map to where his dad lived.Also gave him the directions to find his dad.These are the quotes to support my inference:

"She reached under her desk and pulled out a thick leather book called the "atlas of the united states of America" "She thumbed through a couple of pages and said" that’s where your father lives." PG.57

"She pointed at Flint than she pointed at Chicago, she said "That’s how far you are from your daddy." " Are you still sur you want to walk there?" PG.58


My background knowledge is that if it is up to you, dad or foster home, you would go find your dad. Cause it would be fun, you would find new friends and you have a lot of evidence to try and find him too.


Bud thinks that the shed at the Amos's house is scary. Bud thinks they should not put him in the shed all by himself because it is scary. The son of the Amos’s said that the shed has bats in it witch made Bud even more scared of the shed than he was.


“I will do anything for you folks ask me but please don’t lock me up here alone.” Page.15


Brain: I would think that the shed its scary too if I was going to get locked up in there all alone and I was told there were vampire bats in there.





Bud thinks after he got locked up in the shed it wasn’t locked and Mr. Amos was trying to help him. When Bub went to the door and tried to open it, it twisted but it wouldn’t open enough to get though.


“Mr. Amos was trying to help me!” Page.17


Brain: if I got locked up and the door opened I would think someone was trying to help me too.


I can infer that one of the important settings are the shed. It is right outside the house in the backyard. There are vampire bats and lots of bugs centipedes and spiders.


“yeah Buddy, keep a sharp eye out for those vampire bats in there.”


Brain: sheds are always outside and be hide the house. Sheds a lot for times have lots of bugs in them.

I can infer that the problem is Bud wants to see his dad but he dose not know where his dad is so has flyers with his dad picture on it and his name to find him and he looks for him everywhere.
"I remember Momma bring home this flyer with her when she came from working one day, I remember because she got very upset when she put it on the supper table and kept looking at it and picking it up and putting it back and moving it around." Page.7
"being unhappy about it is one thing but torturing the kids who are there and they don't even want to be is another." "it is my job to help those kids who also don't know where there mother and father are don’t have to put up with Todd."

Accolades
Fostered. Homeless. Bud only has a couple old flyers to find his dad. Can he?
I squeezed my bag to my stomach I ran the train was moving faster than ever.
Summery
Bud wanted to see his dad but he had no idea where he was so he used some old flyers that his mom gave him to find him. In the end, Bud does not find his dad but he does find his Grandfather . Bud responded to the challenge by never giving up. The theme is to never give up and always keep moving.
Is Herman really is dad? Did his mom
really leave him?
Aha!
I can infer that Bud really misses his mom.
"6 is real tough. That's how old I was when I came to live hear in the home. That's how old I was when my momma died." Pg.6

Difficulty
Our difficulty for Bud Not
Buddy is the number 7
Thanks!
