Looking for Bobowicz: A Hoboken Chicken Story

Looking for Bobowicz: A Hoboken Chicken Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

In this hilarious follow-up to "The Hoboken Chicken Emergency," it's the hottest summer in 120 years. A newly relocated Nick Itch and his friends, Bruno Ugg and Loretta Fischetti, set out to find the legendary Arthur Bobowicz and his 266-pound chicken, Henrietta. Illustrations.

About the Author

Peoplemagazine has described the elusive author as "one part Marx brother and one part cracked social satirist, with a particle of werewolf thrown in." The Car Talkguys say, "Pinkwater is nuts."

He resides with his wife, the brilliant artist Jill Pinkwater, in a posh spot in upstate New York. Perhaps in mind of such classics as Alan Mendelsohn, The Boy From Mars; The Big Orange Splot; and The Snarkout Boys and the Baconburg Horror, The Washington Post Book Worlddeclared, "Any book by Daniel Pinkwater is bound to be a treat."
