GRANDPA HATES THE BIRD: Six Short Stories of Exciting, Hilarious and Possibly Deadly Adventure

Hello Goodkindles Readers!

I’m the author of GRANDPA HATES THE BIRD, a collection of comic short stories for young readers. Do you enjoy watching old men trying to kill small animals? (No, not Charlotte’s Web – Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny!) Are you a child between the ages of 6 and 10 or an adult who reads to one? Then you’ll love GRANDPA HATES THE BIRD! Just think: the next time you’re stuck in a crowded waiting room, you can hand your cranky child your smartphone with a story about a funny bird instead of a video game about Angry Birds!

Here’s what one reviewer had to say on Amazon:

Stuck in endless traffic with my 8th and 4th grade kids, husband and mother - no problem! We read, "Grandpa Hates the Bird" aloud and were all riveted. When we arrived at our destination our 9 year old howled "Oh no! Keep reading." Bird, the main character, is a rare combination of astute and charming. His voice, wildly amusing, echoes the realities of domestic family life. And we don't particularly like birds. Well, we didn't.” - Susan Fried

Here’s a description:

“Alas, it’s true. Grandpa hates me. He has always hated me, even before I used his ear as a swing toy (his lobes are so long and flappy!). I can’t imagine why. I assume Grandpa hates me simply because I am the bird—and he is not.”

Everybody loves Bird. Joseph and Maya, Mother and Father, Humphrey the dog, Slick the snake. Everyone except Grandpa, who will stop at nothing to set Bird free. Forever.
