The Lovereading4Kids commentThis extraordinary debut is a funny and refreshingly quirky novel that celebrates the underdog. A boy called Don Schmidt finds fame in a chicken-judging contest and suddenly finds himself an unexpected celebrity. This sets in motion a chain of events that involves his parents, the chickens and a strange family mystery. Suddenly it seems that all Don has been lead to believe throughout his young life, no longer quite adds up...
Chicken Dance by Jacques CouvillonDon Schmidt knows his name has changed, and he believes he had a sister who died of scarlet fever when she was fifteen, but these and other details of Don's life don't quite add up. When Don wins the Horse Island Chicken-Judging Contest, he is an instant celebrity, setting into motion a chain of events that involves a deep dark family mystery.
