This book is about a boy named Tommy and his grandfather named Tom. They had a lot of adventures at Tom and Nana's (Tommy's grandmother) shop. One day, Tommy was sent to the principal's office because he scared a teacher with chicken feet he had brought from the store. Tommy decided not to bring chicken feet to school ever again.

I liked when Tommy started scaring the people at the school. I also liked when Tommy and his grandfather told stories. It reminds me of when my dad and I tell stories in the summer on the porch in New Hampshire.

I think that people who like to scare other people a lot would love this book!
