A Humorous Adventure Story for Kids 8 to 88

The STONE Age meets the TEENage! Quentin Moss is an average 13-year-old boy with an anything-but-average problem: the cave boy he dreamed about last night has shown up, alive and smelly, in his bedroom.

As past and present collide with comic consequences, Quentin must hide the secret identity of his new friend who is fascinated by zippers and loves to flush the toilet — over and over again. Before the day is over, Quentin and his best friend, Dex, have to find a way to help the homesick cave boy get back to his home — thousands of years in the past. But first they have to get through the school day. 

Quentin may not be the cutest, smartest guy in school, but the way he deals with the greatest adventure of his life will have readers of all ages laughing out loud.

The Newbery Medal and Coretta Scott King Award-winning classic about a boy who decides to hit the road to find his father—from Christopher Paul Curtis, author of The Watsons Go To Birmingham—1963, a Newbery and Coretta Scott King Honoree.
 
It’s 1936, in Flint Michigan. Times may be hard, and ten-year-old Bud may be a motherless boy on the run, but Bud’s got a few things going for him:

1. He has his own suitcase full of special things.
2. He’s the author of Bud Caldwell’s Rules and Things for Having a Funner Life and Making a Better Liar Out of Yourself.
3. His momma never told him who his father was, but she left a clue: flyers advertising Herman E. Calloway and his famous band, the Dusky Devastators of the Depression!!!!!!
 
Bud’s got an idea that those flyers will lead him to his father. Once he decides to hit the road to find this mystery man, nothing can stop him—not hunger, not fear, not vampires, not even Herman E. Calloway himself.

 Eski zamanlarda bir kral, saraya gelen yolun üzerine kocaman bir kaya koydurmuş, kendisi de pencereye oturmuş, başlamış izlemeye. Ülkenin en zengin tüccarları, en güçlü kervancıları, saray görevlileri birer birer kayanın etrafından dolaşıp saraya girmişler. Pek çoğu da kralı yüksek sesle eleştirmiş: “Halkından bu kadar vergi alıyor ama yolları temiz tutamıyor. Olur mu canım!” Sonunda bir köylü çıkagelmiş. Saraya meyve ve sebze getiriyormuş. Kayayı görünce sırtındaki küfeyi yere indirmiş, iki eli ile kayaya sarılmış ve ıkına sıkına itmeye başlamış. Sonunda kan ter içinde kalmış ama kayayı da yolun kenarına çekmeyi başarmış. Böylece hem kendisinin hem de kendisinden sonra geleceklerin yolunu açmış. Tam küfesini yeniden sırtına almak üzereymiş ki, kayanın eski yerinde bir kese görmüş. Hem de altın dolu. Bir de kralın notu varmış içinde: “Bu altınlar kayayı yoldan çeken kişiye aittir.” İşte engel: kocaman kaya. İşte fırsat: kayayı kenara çekmek. İşte armağan: bir kese altın. Ve işte formül: Sadece kendini değil başkalarını da düşünmek. Engeller, armağanlar değişebilir ancak formül açık ve net: Kalbin toplum için atmalı, terin toplum için akmalı. Bireysel kaygılar ancak bireysel başarılar getirir. Boyu boyunuz, ömrü ömrünüz kadardır. Ama aklınızın bir köşesinde başkaları için planlar fır dönüyorsa, kalbinizin bir yanında başkaları için hayaller köpükleniyorsa başarınız boyunuzdan da ömrünüzden de uzun olacaktır. Ve unutmayın; her engel hayatınızı daha iyiye götürecek bir fırsattır. Bu fırsat bazen kayanın altında, bazen sırtta taşınan küfenin köşe bucağında, bazen de uykusuz geçen bir gecenin sabahındadır. Kaldırırım, taşırım ve sabahlarım diyorsanız başarı sizin! Güle güle kullanın! Gelecek sayıya kadar fırsatlar peşinizi bırakmasın sevgili dostlar...
