Title Profile & Character Information

Bushman Lives!

Annotation

What Pinkwater does is magic, and I’m grateful for it. --Neil Gaiman (about The Neddiad)
 
Is Bushman the gorilla alive? According to the papers, he died a long time ago. Why is he so important to the high school senior and aspiring Great Artist Harold Knishke? It’s a hot summer in 1960s Chicago, and people are on the streets late at night, including the Chicken Man and Molly the dwerg. While reading this hilarious young adult novel (with illustrations by Calef Brown!) teens will ask themselves, Why am I reading this? and Is Harold about to embark on a voyage of great adventure? He is.
