Book Review of Buddy: How a Rooster Made Me a Family Man

Buddy: How a Rooster Made Me a Family Man
jazzysmom avatar reviewed on + 907 more book reviews

I wish I lived next door to this family. They are so down to earth and you'd never have to go further than your porch to be entertained. Soon after I started reading Buddy I was crying my yes out. Then the author had me laughing and laughing and laughing till I was crying again only this time happy tears...over a chicken! Really..a chicken! Buddy is a one of a kind true story about a chicken who thinks he is human and is treated pretty much like he is. Buddy likes everyone in the house except his biggest threat...the male specimen. The husband and author.
Mr McGrory who doesn't really understand the welcoming of a chicken into the home and would like for nothing better than to have Buddy move elsewhere. The antics that goes on, the love that thrives in the house, the people who make up the McGrory family and the animals that cohabitat make such an endearing story. Loved it.
