I think that the bud not buddy book was a great book because I think it had alot of deatails in it. Also it had alot of describing words like it didn't just say I saw a vampire bat on the celling it gave alot of adjectives to describe what the vampire bat looked like. I liked the part when some adults were pretending to be his parents so that he could go get breakfast.
