"Bud, Not Buddy" is one of my favorite books! In case you want to infuse the lesson with some technology, you might want to consider xtranormal. Xtranormal makes animated videos in a cartoonish kind of way. Here is a link to an xtranormal video of a pretend to interview Christopher Paul Curtis. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lZQsIWNi3k&feature=channel_video_title
