I admire any writer who can write humor for elementary age students. You have to have just the right combination of making it seem real and funny without going too far over the edge. Pinkwater does a great job with this book. Funny, touching, and just an enjoyable little book. Great for girls or boys though boys might appreciate it more. Also really more for 7 to 9 year olds than 9 to 12 year olds. I would also recommend it for reluctant readers.

The book is basically a tale of friendship between a boy named Arthur and a 266 lb. 6 foot tall chicken named Henrietta. When Henrietta gets separated from Arthur and does on a rampage, Arthur has to figure out how to get her back.
