Wacky Fun

by Rosa on Apr 6, 2007

There?s more to Mr. Chickee, the perceptive blind man, than meets the eye. His nine-year-old friend, Steven, finds this out when Mr. Chickee goes away for a bit, leaving him with an envelope containing a quadrillion dollar bill with a picture of James Brown on it. Is it real? Steven, his friend Russell, and Russell?s mammoth dog, Zoopy, soon find themselves being chased by Secret Government Agents, led by the inept Agent Fondoo. Flint, Michigan may never be the same again. This delightfully humorous story is aimed perfectly at its intended audience (adolescent boys) with enough sly wit to captivate adults as well. Steven?s mother, who bases her life on parenting manuals, is hilarious. His father?s parenting style is laugh-worthy as well. Then there?s the irascible family dictionary that voices its opinion too frequently for Steven?s comfort. There?s a touch of fantasy, a dollop of exaggeration, and a lot of imaginative fun in this story. The wordplay is particularly enjoyable. One can only hope that the author continues with the Future Detectives of Flint series.
