Sandy Huntington-Ackerman's life becomes increasingly complicated when his bungling, moneygrubbing uncles try to shanghai the family fortune by poisoning a birthday cake. Luckily, those conniving uncles prove yet again that they can't do anything right. Instead of bumping off the whole family, they put Sandy's mom and dad and their pet chicken into mysterious comas. Sandy joins forces with his loyal butler and a wise and wacky nurse to save his parents and squelch his uncles' felonious high jinks.

I found out about this book through a book group where we are emailed the first twenty pages, as soon as I started reading I was hooked and couldn't wait to buy the book. This book shows you love, family and simplicity.

This was a great book. I read it for summer reading by the choice of a librarian. In the beggining of the story it was very interesting. Then in the middle it was a little boring because of a nurse named, Sunnie. Though I was relieved to hear the ending of anyones dreams. This is a great read for anybody to enjoy a cuddly story with a hot cup of chocolate. READ,'THE LOVE OF THE WALNUTS!!!'

I thought that the characters were funny and that this book was overall good. I did it for a book report and I didnt have to take notes because it was so good and enticing that I knew I would have no problem remembering it.

Pretty good, kinda weird. Great characters and kooky and interesting plot lines. I enjoyed it while I was reading but it wasn't terribly compelling. Still, a nice little mindless break from some of the heavier reading I've been doing otherwise.

A fantasy/fairy tale of a family's utopia being threatened by jealous and evil brothers. When 3 of the family members and a chicken fall into a coma it is up to Sandy, the inmates at the local asylum and a nurse to save his family.
