A Chicken in the Outhouse [NOOK Book]

Overview

Opp, Alabama, in 1937, was a boring place in the summer for a ten year old boy.


Opp was short for Opportunity, a sad contradiction for a town that never developed beyond a series of small farms and ranches. But it was fertile ground for a kid with imagination and time on his hands, and young Billy Stacy had an abundance of both.

    Cute little story

    Its cute, and short. But its a story we can probably all relate to who have ever had a farm or lived out in a rural community.

    What a cute story!

    I loaned it to my 12 year old son when I was done reading it. He said it sounded like something he would do too. We both really enjoyed this short story.

    Probably a good book, but Opp is not short for Opportunity, thou

    Probably a good book, but Opp is not short for Opportunity, though the community is called "The city of opportunity". Opp's namesake was Henry Opp, a man of German descent, a lawyer who lived in the area in the 1800's, and convinced the L and N Railroad to build a depot in the area. The people of the area were thankful, and decided to name the area "Opp" after Mr. Opp because he helped bring more business and jobs to the area due to the depot location.

    This should not be considered a book with only 9 pages but it was simple & cute. Should provide at least a chuckle to most. Certainly wont take too much of your time to check it out.

    Worth reading. Especially for those of us who grew up using the little house that was so cold in the winter.
