Why I liked this title:

It is Thanksgiving morning, and something has gone terribly wrong at Murphy's Meat Market-- the Bobowicz's Thanksgiving turkey reservation has been lost! To make matters worse, there does not seem to be one turkey left in all of Hoboken, New Jersey, and time is running short. Desperate, Arthur Bobowicz brings home the only poultry left in the entire city-- a most unusual chicken named Henrietta. If you like a few chuckles--not to mention clucks--with your holiday stories, you'll love The Hoboken Chicken Emergency.

This title is also available on compact disc.
