If your parents had packed up their belongings, started off across country, stopped off at grandpa's overnight and then decided to drop you off there until they were settled -- taking off before you wake up, would you be friendly with your grandfather? What if he let owls roost in the bathroom, geese wander through the kitchen, and parrots chat through mealtime -- would things be better or worse? If you find out how Sammy, a kid your age handled that predicament, read Betsy Byars "The House of Wings".
