Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Fresh off the success of his hilarious small-town lampoon, Serendipity Green, Rob Levandoski is back with a provocative father/daughter tale guaranteed to deliver as many tears as chuckles. It will also make you think long and hard about modern man's shaky relationship with the animal world.

The setting for Fresh Eggs is Levandoski's fictional Tuttwyler, Ohio. The family is the Cassowarys, a clan of hard-working, guilt-ridden Protestants ready to do whatever it takes to keep their farm in the family for one more generation. And now it's young Calvin Cassowary's turn.

Calvin decides to specialize in chickens. Soon he's got a million hens laying eggs for Gallinipper Foods. But no matter how many new hen houses he adds, his financial troubles only worsen.

If things aren't tough enough, Calvin's little daughter, Rhea, starts growing feathers. He takes her to one specialist after another. No one has a clue. Only Dr. Pirooz Aram, the pesky Persian-American psychiatrist first introduced in Serendipity Green, has an answer: Rhea's feathers are a "stigmatic response" to the horrible way her father's "egg machines" are treated.

Levandoski's exposé of modern factory farming is chilling, and his exploration of the uneasy relationship between fathers and daughters is right from the heart.

Fresh Eggs challenges us to rethink our treatment of creatures more vulnerable than ourselves, including those most precious of creatures, our children.
