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 reading the book makes it all more fun. It's been days since I've turned the CD in and I'm still smiling! I love the confrontation at the end with the kids, Nick's parents and Vic. It's hilarious. I also loved the old songs. I’m looking forward to listening to more of Daniel Pinkwater’s books. Daniel Pinkwater also has a podcast at http://pinkwater.com/podcast/.
