Looking for Bobowicz

By Daniel Pinkwater
Rating: 4 stars
Reviewed by Noelle

Nick is unhappy to have to move to Hoboken. He is even more unhappy to have his bike stolen the very first hour in the new place. But then he makes some new friends and they hang out in the cool basement, reading Classic Comics and listening to pirate radio as the summer passes. One day in the basement, Nick and his friends stumble on a scrapbook filled with newspaper clippings about a giant chicken who terrorized the city and was owned by an Arthur Bobowicz. When the kids start asking questions, no one seems to know about the 6 foot high chicken, or about "the phantom" who they suspect of stealing bikes. Soon the trio are chin-deep in attempts to track down Arthur Bobowicz and find the giant chicken! Readers will be rolling in the aisles as they meet crazy characters, try catching bats with hats, and search for the giant chicken. A very funny, offbeat story that will have kids asking for more books by Daniel Pinkwater.
