JJ Tully is a retired search and rescue dog, but he cannot seem to enjoy his retirement. He’s pestered by crazy chickens in his yard: Millicent (he called her Moosh) and her puffy chicks Little Boo and Peep (he called Dirt and Sugar).  When the chicks go missing, JJ Tully, bribed by a cheeseburger, is hired to track them down. But, whose side are the chickens on? Something doesn’t smell right with this case.

JJ Tully is one hard-nosed detective. The book is written in short sentences, making it an easy read for advanced readers. Humour mixed with mystery, this book will make a great read reluctant boys.
