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.

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.

There's one big reason why my kids (ages 3 and 5 ... advanced readers) will not get to read this book. The word "hate" is not allowed in their vocabulary. They can dislike, they can be unhappy with something but the word "hate" gets them in trouble. They are way too young (and will be for many years) to learn to use that word. Maybe I'm too sensitive but I just cannot even get over the title.

Such a morbid children's story, my son is now worried that if we leave our pets with his grandparents that they may just poison them.

I liked the story. I think if it was longer and had more pictures or Illustrations in it I would have liked it more.

It is a nice story that could be read to children and I am sure children would like it.

I've also written a series of dark comic short stories for younger readers, inspired my dark comic dad, called Grandpa Hates the Bird. The book I'm working on now is called Cast Off: The Strange Adventures of Petra de Winter and Braam Broen.
