Guess what? I wrote some more books! And I published them myself. Electronically.
I can’t have been the only third grader with Edward Gorey on the nightstand and Little House on the Prairie in the closet. I can’t be the only person who passed her cherished copy of Very Special People: With 52 Pages of Fascinating Photographs of these Astonishing Wonders by Frederick Drimmer (oh, Ripley, you’ve got nothing on Drimmer!) to her firstborn. When he was five. Surely, I can’t have been the only kid who relished the macabre and reveled in the weird. Right?
For all the kids out there like me, the GRANDPA HATES THE BIRD stories are for you.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do you laugh out loud at the mortification of others? (Think any Ben Stiller movie you’ve ever seen – except Greenberg.)
- Do you enjoy watching old men try to kill small animals? (No, not Charlotte’s Web – Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny!)
- Are you a kid between the ages of 6 and 10 or an adult who reads to one?
Then you’ll love GRANDPA HATES THE BIRD.

(Okay, I admit it. Bookalachi wasn’t talking specifically about GRANDPA HATES THE BIRD when they wrote this in the “how we review” section of their website. But, hey, they could have been. And GRANDPA doesn’t have any real reviews yet, so I had to be creative.)
There are six uproarious GRANDPA tales. That’s six bedtimes, six car rides, six doctor’s office waiting rooms. Did I mention that each story costs 99 cents – or you can buy all six for $2.99? Take that, Scooby Doo Haunted Road Trip! (Scooby Doo Haunted Road Trip costs $3.99, and it’s only one story, and it’s paper so you have to go out and get it or wait for UPS to deliver it. GRANDPA is obviously way better. Obviously.)
