Wow... What's wrong with this listing, Barnes and Noble? I can buy the hardcover edition for a penny, but if I want it for my Nook I have to pay $99.99? Do you hate your customers that badly?

While Chen and his wife are in Hawaii, Zhu Iizh is living on their houseboat with badger, Chen's wife's loyal companion and protector, a badger when not in hiding but a teakettle when incognito. Luckily for Zhu Itzh,Badger reports to Chen on what Zhu Irzh does while Chen is gone, and when Ma calls him to let him know that Zhu Irzh may be over his head, Chen returns to help unravel the threads of the problem.
