When Nick moved from the leafy suburbs to muggy, urban Hoboken and his bike was stolen, he wasn't pleased. Then he found a place where he could listen to pirate radio, friends with a stack of Classics Comics, newspaper reports about a kid named Arthur Bobowicz and a 266-pound chicken named Henrietta, the secret entrance to Sibyl's Cave, and much, much more, all of it practically true.
Get an ice-cold Dr. Pedwee's grape soda and prepare to enjoy this Pinkwater Special, complete with saucy dialogue, snarky wordplay, more than a few red herrings, and one bowl of disgusting oyster stew.

Daniel Pinkwater's gloriously funny books include The Hoboken Chicken Emergency, Looking for Bobowicz, and The Artsy Smartsy Club. He is regularly featured on National Public Radio. He lives in upstate New York with his beautiful wife, artist Jill Pinkwater.From AudioFile:
If you're in the mood to be charmed, delighted, and thoroughly engaged--in short, if you want to be happy--then race out and get the newest Daniel Pinkwater children's book, which is intended for children aged 6 to 106. In his inimitable sort-of-New Jersey accent, Pinkwater shares the story of Nick, a boy who has moved with his inattentive family to Hoboken. There his bike is stolen and he listens to pirate radio, meets cool friends who love Classic Comics as much as he does, and uncovers the secret of Arthur Bobowicz and his 266-pound chicken. What more does one want in a plot? It's clever; it's funny; it's oddly moving. Pinkwater reads with abandoned perfection, and, like the best comedians, he always waits for the laugh. A.C.S.
