Book Description

“I am no fool. I knew that if I wanted to make it to the end of the week alive, I would have to avoid upsetting Grandpa as much as possible. No singing, no playful nips, no jaunty bell.”

Bird and Grandpa stay home in Massachusetts while Mother, Father, Joseph and Maya head south for a winter holiday. When Grandpa determines to set tropical Bird free in freezing February, Bird must use every bit of bird brain power to outsmart him.

• Will Bird become a parrot popsicle?
• What’s in the creepy second bedroom where no one ever goes?
• Do Grandpa and Bird play Dig a Hole to China and Send Birdie on a Trip?

In the spirit of Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd, and Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, here come Bird and Grandpa in the hilarious first short story in the Grandpa Hates the Bird series!

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing but conflicted terms January 31, 2012
By Linda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a parent, I would have read this to my boys simply because I saw nothing wrong with it. As a former teacher of small children & librarian storyteller I would not because there are certain terms (hate the bird, kill the bird)parents do not approve of and I do not feel comfortable introducing to other children. That said, if you buy it, pre-read it before introducing it to your child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can a birdbrain outwit Grandpa? June 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Amazon has "Grandpa hates the Bird" listed as a children's book. That's fine, but I'm a grownup and I loved the story. The Bird is a green-cheeked conure (Parakeet) who loves his human family. He's a very smart bird. Indeed, he's the narrator of the story. In this story, the first in a series, Bird is left with Grandpa while the rest of the family is traveling. Unfortunately, Grandpa hates Bird with a vengeance, so much so that he's determined to get rid of Bird.

Will Bird be able to survive a week with Grandpa? That's the burning question in this funny story of a birdbrain versus a human in a battle of wits. The stakes couldn't be higher: if Grandpa throws Bird out the door in the middle of a New England winter, the tropical-bred Bird won't last a minute. But Bird does have a trick or two up his sleeve.

I enjoyed the story very much, and I'm looking forward to reading other stories in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars bird's eyeview November 18, 2011

nice little short story for kids from the bird's perspective on it's interaction with humans - especially those humans who don't 'get' what the bird thinks. Just a few minutes as a filler of time to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars entertaining March 23, 2014
By Susan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My husband down-loaded this book for our 4-yr-old grandson. Since this has no pictures it's probably not going to be a hit with him, but I found it quite amusing and entertaining, and think it would be the perfect read for an older child.

A bit predictable and 'been done before' sort of content. Nothing that overly appealed, was funny but didn't actually go anywhere. Value for money a good bedtime story but not a read over and over type of book
