Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fans of Cronin’s first J.J. Tully mystery, The Trouble with Chickens (2011), will welcome the return of retired search-and-rescue dog J.J. Tully, mother hen Moosh and her four chicks in this follow-up adventure .... Here’s hoping J.J. and company find more to puzzle over pronto.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Children who like a little bit of everything mixed into their reading, particularly mystery, adventure, and animals, will enjoy this book.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for THE TROUBLE WITH CHICKENS: “Cronin brings her droll humor to the chapter book set with great success. Fast-paced and funny, with interesting vocabulary and a well-constructed plot, this is terrific fare for readers.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Praise for THE TROUBLE WITH CHICKENS: “The noirlike detective Tully and the funny chickens running around, well, like chickens make appealing characters, especially as drawn by Cornell, who knows how to get TV cartoon–style humor out of the action.” (Booklist)

From the Back Cover

After his last run-in with Vince the Funnel and the mystery of the missing chicks, J.J. the search-and-rescue dog is ready for some much-needed R & R. But just when he thinks he has everything under control, there’s a new problem to worry about: Diamond Lil, a shiny new dog who’s taken up residence next door. Suddenly Moosh and her chicks are spending an awful lot of time with their fancy friend, talking about weird things like fluffy feathers and good posture. And Lil’s not the only new kid cramping J.J.’s style. There’s a possum loose, and it’s up to J.J. to keep everyone safe. But the questions keep piling up. Is Lil all that she seems? And how does the possum keep finding her way to the chicken coop?

In this hilarious follow-up to The Trouble with Chickens, the clues, plot twists, and one-liners add up to an unputdownable read.

I read this book to my 6 year old. It's light, but not in a bad way - he enjoyed the pictures, and most of all, he asked a lot of questions about words he didn't know, and about the story that told me he was engaged and listening to me read it to him.
