A few things to know about Dylan

He is the only boy in his entire town.

His best friends are two pet chickens.

Criminal instincts run in his family.

And one more small thing about nine-year-old Dylan—the crime of the century has just fallen into his lap.

Synopsis:

A few things to know about Dylan

He is the only boy in his entire town—so forget about playing soccer.

His best friends are two pet chickens.

His family owns the world's only gas station/coffee house—their pies are to die for, but profits are in the hole.

Criminal instincts run in his family—his sister is a mastermind-in-training, and the tax men are after his father for questioning.

And one more small thing about nine-year-old Dylan—the crime of the century has just fallen into his lap.

With the same easy mix of wit, warmth, and wonder that made his debut novel, "Millions," an award-winning international bestseller, Frank Cottrell Boyce tells the story of a boy who reminds an entire town of the power of art.

About the Author

Frank Cottrell Boyce is the author of two other books for children: Framed and Millions, which was made into a movie by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle. He lives in England with his family.

This was such a funny book. I loved the family and the tongue in cheek art references. I felt like I was having as much fun as the characters.
