11-year-old Alfie Pluck starts life with extreme bad luck - Dahlishly grotesque aunts who treat him as their Household Drudge. He comes across a doctor who has created a 'good luck' gene. The gene is currently lodged in the brain of a very lucky chicken whose luck runs out when Alfie runs away with it, and eventually eats it. Then the race is on to get hold of Alfie, or perhaps his brain..

The book is fast-paced, probably best for boys of around 8-11. There are plenty of villains, highly caricatu
Read this one to my son, we enjoyed it for the most part, he especially, but I found some parts just a bit too far-fetched (esp the aliens, what was that about?!)
Otherwise though, it was very entertaining!
This is probably the weirdest book I've ever come across in my whole life. Other than that, NO COMMENT. I read this last in 6th grade or something.
