After his last run-in with Vince the Funnel and the mystery of the missing chicks, J.J. the search-and-rescue dog is ready for some much-needed R & R. But just when he thinks he has everything under control, thereís a new problem to worry about: Diamond Lil, a shiny new dog whoís taken up residence next door. Suddenly Moosh and her chicks are spending an awful lot of time with their fancy friend, talking about weird things like fluffy feathers and good posture. And Lilís not the only new kid cramping J.J.ís style. Thereís a possum loose, and itís up to J.J. to keep everyone safe. But the questions keep piling up. Is Lil all that she seems? And how does the possum keep finding her way to the chicken coop?

In this hilarious follow-up to The Trouble with Chickens, the clues, plot twists, and one-liners add up to an unputdownable read.

User Review  - Nanci Booher - Goodreads

So I liked Trouble with Chickens more than this one but I love the much so I have started reading the Chicken Squad series..which is about the chicks. This will still be an "adding to the collection at school" title, and I'm sure the kids will enjoy it. Read full review
