    Bluffton Kindle ¹ Hardcover bluffton epub, Bluffton ePUBI love this lovely watercolor trip back to Muskegon Michigan about an hour and a half from where I grew up in Grand Rapids Holland and Grand Haven were the places I went to get to Lake Michigan from GR and my parents had a summer home north of Muskegon in Ludington but I rarely went there so I wasn't familiar with Bluffton as an area of that town nor did I know that in 1908 Buster Keaton his family and a troupe of vaudevillians summered there This historical fiction for tweens or YA may not find its audience as who knows who Bust

    Bluffton Kindle ¹ Hardcover bluffton epub, Bluffton ePUBI keep reading Phelan's books because they sound interesting and I like his art but have found the others just OK and didn't really expect to be reading him any however the historical theme grabbed my attention once again and the Buster Keaton story pulled me right in this time I love reading about the era of the silent movies and ended up really enjoying this book The book is actually about Keaton's childhood in vaudeville before he became a movie star and is related through the eyes of a fictional character who spent his summers with him in a tiny town called B

    Bluffton Kindle ¹ Hardcover bluffton epub, Bluffton ePUBMatt Phelan has been one of my favorites authors and graphic novelist since reading the graphic novel about life during the Dust Bowl The Storm in the Barn and the delightful picture book entitled Flora's Very Windy Day I wasn't expecting to read Bluffton today but I am so glad that I did I cried at the end and that is without even knowing anything about Buster Keaton or his life The story follows a young Buster during three of his summers in Muskegon Michigan The narrator of the story is a fictional character named Henry who wishes he had Buster's life rather his own in boring Muskegon According to the Author's Note The Actors' Colony at Bluffton was outside of Muskegon from 1908 1938 and many vaudevillian actors spent their s

    Bluffton Kindle ¹ Hardcover bluffton epub, Bluffton ePUBI actually forgot this was about Buster Keaton until I was pretty far into the book the subtitle's not on the cover just the title page Which I think worked to the books advantage It's a relatively chill story about a kid growing up in Michigan who meets a bunch of vaudeville performers taking their break at a retreat center on the great lake There are some darker themes but most of it is pretty relaxed Or at least I relaxed after I realized the impetus for the story Beautiful illustrations as per norm for Phelan Although his speech bubbles stick out like a sore thumb in a bad way need to start integrating them better dude

    Bluffton Kindle ¹ Hardcover bluffton epub, Bluffton ePUBI am not giving this book two stars because it is bad But I don't like books in which the goal is to educate someone about a real life person Buster Keaton is a real life person This book is like a graphic novel historical fiction of Buster Keaton Ick If I want to read a biography on Buster Keaton I'll do that Inventing a fictional character and making Buster Keaton his best summer friend just annoys meThe artwork is nothing to write home about

    Bluffton Kindle ¹ Hardcover bluffton epub, Bluffton ePUBMatt Phelan has done an amazing job in his graphic novel of famous vaudeville actor Buster Keaton Although his character Henry Harrison is a fictional boy the vaudevillians summering in Bluffton Michigan at The Actors’ Colony was not Henry meets the performers the summer of 1908 and although he is impressed with Buster he realizes that Buster and another performer Lex have similiarities than differences Henry would like Buster to teach him some of his tricks but Buster is interested in everyday summer activities like baseball Phelan uses soft watercolors to depict the frames but the facial details of the characters draw you into the undercurrent themes of the novel Henry is awe struck with the vaudevillians yet his father and friend Sally are not There responses to his gushing’s of
