A few things to know about Dylan

He is the only boy in his entire town—so forget about playing soccer.

His best friends are two pet chickens.

His family owns the world's only gas station/coffee house—their pies are to die for, but profits are in the hole.

Criminal instincts run in his family—his sister is a mastermind-in-training, and the tax men are after his father for questioning.

And one more small thing about nine-year-old Dylan—the crime of the century has just fallen into his lap.

With the same easy mix of wit, warmth, and wonder that made his debut novel, Millions, an award-winning international bestseller, Frank Cottrell Boyce tells the story of a boy who reminds an entire town of the power of art.

From AudioFile:

In a Welsh mountainside town a family struggles to maintain both their business and familial bonds. Other elements of this energetic novel include a repository for works of art from the National Gallery, Ninja Turtle lovers, football, and a bit of thievery. The concoction is fast paced, humorous, and poignant as young Dylan lays himself on the line for his family. Jason Hughes takes on the characters and situations, deftly creating personalities and narrative drive. One marvels at the craftiness of sister Minnie, the wisdom of the lone schoolteacher, the optimism and determinism of narrator Dylan, and the humorous confusion over famous artists, Turtles, and free-range chickens. Appreciation for the power of fine art shines through all. A.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
