I thought that this was a funny and eventful story however I was crushed in the beginning. I did not like how the book started off with the main character witnessing his best friend's death. It did not make me want to find out why someone jumped off a bridge because we were immediately told that it was because they were being chased by agents of the department of treasury. However I did like the strengths of the book. When reading Mr. Chickee's Funny Money, Curtis was able to vividly paint a picture of what it was like to be a member in the Carter family home. He gave great insight into the family and gave each character a distinct personality. Being from Michigan, I also really liked his display of local color to Flint Michigan. After reading the book, I wanted to look up the places that the characters went especially Kearsley Dam. This is a great beginning book to an adventure. I would recommend this book to someone in the fourth or fifth grade who enjoys adventure or mystery.

Steven lives in the neighborhood of Mr. Othello Chickee. Since Mr. Othello is blind and somewhat elderly, Steven takes him on Sunday outings and to the grocery store to help aid him in his grocery shopping experience. Steven usually gets paid by means of Verners and salt and vinegar chips, except for one eventful time. One day, Mr. Othello gives Steven a dollar bill that has fifteen zeros! Steven finds out that this bill is actually a quadrillion dollar bill. Steven of course lets his best friend Russell and Russell's dog, Zoopy know about this mysterious bill.

It is then found out that there are only "five" of these bills circulating around, and so Agent Fondoo from the U.S. Treasury Department tries to get a hold of this bill. Steven's dad is hesitant, simply guiding his son to the dictionary when questions revolving around the bill are asked. Due to the bill's rareness, Steven will get a reward of $20,000 if he turns it in.

This bill leads to a mysterious journey, one sad happening, but overall of lots of laughs!
