Book review by: Luis, 6th grade student, Indianapolis
I thought The Chicken Doesn’t Skate was a funny book. Milo brought a chicken for the science project in the food chain. The whole class forgot that it was a science project, and that Milo was going to take the chicken and serve it to the judges. Everyone in the class treated her like the class pet. Zachary didn’t like the chicken but if Milo killed the chicken he will have dreams about Henrietta. Zachary thought that he was the only one that was going to take Henrietta and save her, but when Zachary got to the school no one was there so it was free and easy he thought. Zachary took the chicken. He heard something in the hall so he sneaked in the closet. Then he heard two people talk. “We know you’re there. Come out!” Then he didn’t do anything. He heard the door knob. Then once it opened there were two people standing in front of him. He saw Kelly Marie and Adam and they said, “Where is Henrietta?” Then Zachary said, “I got her. “Let’s get out of here before someone else comes.” Then they took her to Zachary’s house because if the cops were going to look for Henrietta they were going to go to Adam’s and Kelly Marie’s house first. So they left it in Zachary’s house because people knew Zachary hated the chicken. When Zachary took the chicken his little brother was looking at Henrietta and doing everything she did. Then since Zachary’s little brother always threw his toys and stuff at his computer Zachary got really good at stopping everything his brother threw at his computer. Zachary was trying to stop the toys and stuff because he was trying to become a famous writer. Read this book and find out if Milo makes Henrietta dinner. And will they find out who stole Henrietta?
