Product Description

Product 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!

HASH(0xa570df18) out of 5 stars Amusing but conflicted terms Jan. 31 2012

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.

HASH(0xa570de64) out of 5 stars bird's eyeview Nov. 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.

HASH(0xa570dea0) out of 5 stars For a kids book, should use better language July 23 2014

The story is not bad, but it's not something I would want my son or daughter to read.. I think it's a bit too young to have them read "kill the bird"..

HASH(0xa5c603e4) out of 5 stars Funniest Read in a Long Time June 23 2013
By Sara Yacks - Published on
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.

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