    Agatha is back again and she makes just as big a mess as the last time you read about her.  She's a character who does what she wants how she wants to.  I like her!

    Clarion Books and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 27th.

    It's a new school year and Agatha goes back hoping for more playground equipment.  Nope.  But there has to be a surprise somewhere.  There is:  her class will be raising baby chicks this year.  First she has to wait until the eggs hatch.  When they do, the chicks are all yellow and fluffy.  Everybody loves them except the spoiled girl who lives in the biggest house on the block and looks down on all of them.  She tries to get them removed from the school by claiming they're a health hazard.  Agatha's favorite of the group goes over and poops on the floor by the spoiled one's shoe.  You would have thought it was a bomb...

    When the teacher breaks the incubator, the students get to take the chicks home for one night.  There are thirteen chicks.  But when they get home, they only have twelve chicks.  What happened to her favorite chick, Random?

    The next day, they take the chicks back and wait for disaster to fall.  It doesn't but you won't guess why.  Agatha has to figure out just what happened and it's quite a story.  Agatha always makes me laugh.  I enjoy books that do that.
