A kid from the city moves to the country! "Finally I was going to be a good old country boy (my country cousins always called me a city boy) Mom and Dad became Ma and Pa just like the old western movies while my bicycle hopped around like a wild bronco." Join this suspense filled adventure as Randy raises chickens and hopes for eggs that he can one day sell.

This is a super cute children's book all about hard work, dedication...and chickens. We loved this one here. We live in a rural community and found this story easy to relate with. Randy has to work hard and learn a lot about raising chickens to meet his goal, but hard work and perseverance pay off in the end. This is great for a teachable moment on working hard to achieve your goals. This was a great little story with fun illustrations. Our favorite was the American Gothic parody as we live only a few blocks from the house itself! This is really a great little story and we'd love to read more of Randy's farm-life adventures!
