"Bud Caldwell, a 10-year-old vagabond orphan in pursuit of his long lost father from Flint to Grand Rapids, Michigan, is the quintessential endearing hero. Bud's first-person narrative demands an enthusiastic and versatile reader. James Avery is all that and more. His Bud is charming and sincere, and the cast of characters, presented with endless variations in voicing, is authentic and memorable. His zippy reading creates the perfect mood. Add in occasional jazz tunes at chapter changes, as well as Bud Caldwell's Rules and Things for Having a Funner Life and Making a Better Liar out of Yourself, and you just may have the best way to experience this award-winning book. T.B. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
