Moving to Hoboken certainly wasn’t Nick’s idea, but his parents wanted him to live the urban experience. What an experience it is! Within a day his bicycle is stolen by the phantom. Then his dad’s collection of Classic Comics disappear. What’s next? Along with his new friends, Loretta and Bruno he starts uncovering many secrets. What do these things all have in common? A giant chicken, a pirate radio station, Sybil’s cave, a mad scientist. Grab an ice-cold Dr. Pedwee’s Grape Soda and join the mad cap adventure filled with snappy dialogue, clever word play and outrageous puns.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2006-2007)
