Reviews

"Children who like a little bit of everything mixed into their reading, particularly mystery, adventure, and animals, will enjoy this book."--School Library Journal
"Fans of Cronin's first J.J. Tully mystery, The Trouble with Chickens (2011), will welcome the return of retired search-and-rescue dog J.J. Tully, mother hen Moosh and her four chicks in this follow-up adventure .... Here's hoping J.J. and company find more to puzzle over pronto."--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for THE TROUBLE WITH CHICKENS: "The noirlike detective Tully and the funny chickens running around, well, like chickens make appealing characters, especially as drawn by Cornell, who knows how to get TV cartoon-style humor out of the action."--Booklist
Praise for THE TROUBLE WITH CHICKENS: "Cronin brings her droll humor to the chapter book set with great success. Fast-paced and funny, with interesting vocabulary and a well-constructed plot, this is terrific fare for readers."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
