The Chicken Pox Capers

By: Joanne Oemig

About the Book

Eight-year-old Bradley Edwards doesn’t think of himself as a troublemaker. He’s a good kid with an imagination. He’s smart. (He will tell you that when you meet him). He is quick to find ways to solve even the messiest problem. (He will tell you that, too). He is also good at creating problems. (He might not tell you that). Bradley lives by one rule: Be a kid!

With the help of Bradley’s little sister, Kara, best friend, Billy, and the family dog, Squirrel, there are plenty of misadventures in store.

The Chicken Pox Capers, set in the days when life was simpler and the most advanced technology was the VCR, is a whimsical series of stories about a little boy who is certain he knows how his world should be ordered. Just ask him. He’ll tell you…because he’s smart!

    Humorous look at family life through the eyes of a very aware young boy. Good for those of us who remember simpler times past.
