Pinkwater, Daniel. Looking for Bobowicz

Pinkwater, Daniel. Looking for Bobowicz. HarperCollins, 2004 [0-06-053554-7]
Once again we enter the strange world of Daniel Pinkwater's mind (I would love to meet him over a drink sometime.) Nick and his family move from the suburbs to urban Hobokan. There his bike is quickly stolen by a mysterious Phantom (who no one will talk about), he meets two friends, a diskjockey at a independent radio station, and reads of Bobowicz in old newspaper clippings. Bobowicz had a 6 foot chicken who once terrorized the neighborhood. Nick sets out to find the mysterious Phantom (and his bike) and this Mr. Bobowicz and his strange chicken. This 200 page book is a fun read with Pinkwater's zany sense of humor.
