Kindle ç The Trouble with Chickens â Doreen Cronin

JJ Tully is a former search and rescue dog who is trying to enjoy his retirement after years of performing daring missions saving lives So he's not terribly impressed when tw I got this book from the library because I thought it might appeal to some of the Primaries newly hatched readers who are now studying things that hatch It seemed a perfect match but this title The Trouble With Chickens A JJ Tully Mystery like some of Cronin's other work suffers from confusion of audience In tone and language this book wants to parody Raymond Chandler's private dick on a case However I suspect that few children of Primary age are familiar with The Long Goodbye or other livres noirs Conseuently unless this work is read aloud to children by a reader willing to commit to her best Humphrey Bogart impersonation I suspect it will be lost on its intended audienceIn the 2nd chapter after JJ Tully a retired rescue dog meets Millicent Moosh a chicken who enlists his services he meets her chicksShe called them Little Boo and PeepI called them Dirt and Sugar for no particular reasonMuch is left to no particular reason as the writer torments an already convoluted plot in service of Chandlerisms bound to be lost on her readership I no longer have a k 2nd grader in the house to serve as guinea pig for this kind of story but plan to test this title with some Primaries tomorrow and see if they both like and get this title If they don't it won't be a mystery to me

Ebook The Trouble with Chickens

The Trouble with ChickensHeeseburger JJ begins to track down clues Is Vince the Funnel hiding something? Are there dark forces at work or is JJ not smelling the evidence that's right in front of him? The genius of Doreen Cronin is her ability to write a book for kids with a layer of humor that also appeals to adults In this case JJ Tully operates like a detective in a Raymond Chandler novel G rated of course I listened to this on audio and there were many times I had to laugh out loud over puns and observations that Tully makes Would make a fabulous selection for a family road trip Hank the Cowdog lovers will love JJ Tully too Highly recommended
