Summary:

Tobin McCauley’s got a near-certifiable grandmother, a pack of juvenile-delinquent siblings, and a dad who’s not going to win father of the year any time soon. To top it off, Tobin’s only friend truly believes that the study of chickens will reveal . . . the meaning of life? Getting through seventh grade isn’t easy for anyone, son, but when the first day of school starts out with your granny’s arrest, you know you’ve got real problems. Throw on a five-day suspension (for defending your English teacher’s honor), a chicken that lays green eggs, and a family feud that’s tearing everyone to pieces, and you’re in for one heck of a ride.
With her remarkable ability to create characters you wish could be part of your life forever, Frances O’Roark Dowell introduces Tobin McCauley, Chicken Boy.

    Chicken Boy is on the 2008 Illinois Rebecca Caudill list and I try to read good children's literature that I can encourage my girls (13 & 8) to read. My 13-year old was in the car with me for just snippets of the audio book and she went right to her school library so she could read the entire book herself. I thought it was great and so did my 13-year old.
