Chicken Trek Reviews
Holy shit how do I remember the details of this insanely weird book so well?
Just as I remembered it. <3
The main character, Oscar J. Noodleman visits his cousin who is an inventor. They decide to participate in a contest eat a Bagful o' Chicken at every one of the 211 franchises in 60 days. But they are being pursued by Madame Gulbenkian, who sees all, knows all, casts magic spells, and can swallow a whole chicken leg in one gulp.I must have read this in elementary school. I remember loving it but I don't remember much else. I'll most likely pick it up again and read it just for fun!
Boy ruins uncle's expensive camera. Drives around country attempting to win a contest eating chicken at the most locations to pay for aforementioned camera. Competes against a crazy lady. Begins to turn into a chicken during his travails. The zany tale chooses not to insult the young readers intelligence hinting at the (not unrelated) dangers of marketing and addiction. Highly recommended.
This was a cute and funny children's book :)
Read this book when I was a kid. One of these days I'm gonna read it again as an adult. It's fun, holds up really well, and is a good read no matter how old you are.
Pinkwater-esque silliness about a cross-country fried-chicken-eating contest.
