Synopsis: Giant fiberglass wieners atop a hotdog stand. Wild green parrots that live in the city. A double-decker outhouse. A museum dedicated to surgical science. Statues that weep. Find out where these and other eclectic sites are located in Oddball Illinois, an offbeat travel guide that’s a mix of Fodors and News of the Weird. There is more between Chicago and St. Louis than cornfields and plenty of fascinating places in the Windy City that aren’t on Michigan Avenue. Oddball Illinois won’t point out the hottest club in Chicago, the quaintest small-town bed & breakfast, nor the most scenic hiking trail in Illinois. This book will, however, tell about the locations of America’s One and Only Hippie Memorial, Scarlett O’Hara’s green drapes, Popeye’s Hometown, and several places the local Chambers of Commerce would just as soon be forgotten. Behind all the odd sights is some wonderfully interesting history and a chance to see some underappreciated sites throughout the state.

About the Author: Jerome Pohlen is an editor and educational writer who has written 40 travel guides covering most of the continental United States. His travel writing has appeared in the Chicago Reader. He lives in Chicago.
