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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars bird's eyeview November 18, 2011
    By carolM
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    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 Funniest Read in a Long Time June 23, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Bird's family is a little girl, Maya, and her brother, Joseph, and Mother. Once a year the family goes on a trip for a week, leaving Bird with Grandma and Grandpa. Bird is liked, if not loved by all except Grandpa, and this year, Grandma has a trip to take at the same time as Bird's family, so he will be alone with Grandpa. What will happen to Bird?

    Very well written, very realistic with accurate bird facts, and EXTREMELY funny! I have not laughed out loud while reading in years, and I repeatedly interrupted my husband's activities to read him the funny parts. I can't wait for the kids to get home so we can read it together.

    Spoiler:
    I just about lost my marbles with laughter over the playing dead funeral scene, and Father saying, "stop being morbid." Too hilarious!!!

    Good writing, not the best plot...a little morbid for kids. My 8 year old enjoyed it, but my younger kids didn't.

    5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loved this story! October 12, 2014
    By J. Hall
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    My young daughter enjoyed me reading this as a bedtime story. It was humorous. Of course I had to read it in a parrot voice, but it was fun and a great story to tell to your child. I originally put four stars because I feel like it just ended abruptly, but as I wrote this review, my daughter kept telling me to mark the other star so I did. She totally enjoyed it.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Primitive August 27, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Primitive and not very engaging for a start if a book series. The parrot character is great but there is really one story line "the battle". Needs some more for a general series plot.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Funny Shorts May 9, 2012
    By Phayes
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This is a fun little book best read to kids by an adult. While truly humorous, there are some ideas that might require parental explanation (Kill the bird, for example).

    More About the Author

    I write books for kids. My first novel is called Escape Under the Forever Sky. It's about the 13-year old daughter of the American ambassador to Ethiopia who gets kidnapped and has to find her way to freedom. I've also written a series of dark comic short stories for younger readers, inspired my dark comic dad, called Grandpa Hates the Bird. My latest book is a 17th century seafaring adventure called Cast Off: The Strange Adventures of Petra De Winter and Bram Broen.
