From the author of "Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days!" and the artist who created "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs," this new Nook edition includes the entire classic book, plus two free bonuses: "Chicken Trek: The Screenplay" (not yet a major or even minor motion picture) and the author's revelations about this book's fowl history. The story?
How much chicken can one human eat? Oscar Noodleman is about to find out!
Oscar owes his weird inventor cousin $49,462.37--plus tax. His cousin needs the money to avoid a horrible fate. The only way out is for Oscar to win the Bagful o' Cash prize in a coast-to-coast chicken-eating contest.
Trekking across America in his cousin's amazing Picklemobile, Oscar stuffs down more than two hundred chicken meals. But an evil seer with a huge appetite, a grudge against Oscar's cousin, and a taste for fowl play is hot on the drumstick trail herself.
Will Oscar sprout feathers? Will the ChickenSniffer, the RemDem(tm) and his cousin's other crazy inventions save the day? Feast on this tale and cackle at the fine-feathered fun!
