Editorial Reviews

CM Magazine
"This novel is a funny, goofy romp written with lots of imagination. Jimmy Beaulieu's pen and ink illustrations are perfectly suited to the story, simple, clever and humourous. Recommended."
Children's Literature - Debby Willett
Matt and Mia live a double life with their Uncle Orlando, who is an animal trainer. During the school year the family lives in the city, and during the summer months, they live in a cottage on the shores of Blackfly Lake. This particular summer, Uncle Orlando is training poultry: ducks, a rooster, hens and their chicks, and one huge turkey! "Flooooblooobloobloo, flooooblooobloobloo!" Alfred greets Matt and Mia. Matt thinks Alfred is a mutant. Uncle Orlando says the turkey, Alfred, is going to star in a science-fiction film, and Matt and Mia's job is to keep the chicken coop clean. Before too long, Alfred disappears and strange things start to happen. While looking for Alfred, Matt and Mia meet a neighbor named, Maria. Uncle Orlando and Maria become friends, and Matt and Mia think they start to see signs of Alfred around Maria's house. Flowers from Maria's garden are picked and left on her porch, but no one seems to know how. The chickens in Uncle Orlando's coop start acting very funny. Uncle Orlando's paddle boat disappears. Alfred is seen wearing Uncle Orlando's blue checkered shirt, and soon, Alfred is seen escaping to the nearby island in the paddle boat. This story is one big adventure, and it is all about love. The book forcuses on how Alfred the turkey, Uncle Orlando the animal trainer, Matt, Mia, and Maria, work out the details of unrequited love. Written as a first novel, this publication meets the reading level of a first chapter book. It is an entertaining story, and the black ink sketches are comically support the plot. This book is part of the "First Novels" series. Reviewer: Debby Willett
