SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE! The hilarious story of a boy who leaps into battle when he’s forced to share a room with his grandfather.

Peter is thrilled that Grandpa is coming to live with his family. That is, until Grandpa moves right into Peter’s room, forcing him upstairs.
Peter loves his grandpa but wants his room back. He has no choice but to declare war! With the help of his friends, Peter devises outrageous plans to make Grandpa surrender the room. But Grandpa is tougher than he looks. Rather than give in, Grandpa plans to get even.
They used to be such great pals. Has their war gone too far?

"Peter tells this story with honesty and humor....By the story's end, Peter has learned much about the causes and effects of war--and human dignity."-School Library Journal

"The humor of the story derives from Peter's first-person account and from the reader's recognition of Peter's valiant effort to maintain two mutually exclusive emotions."-The Horn Book Magazine

Title: The War with Grandpa
Author: Robert Kimmel Smith
An Excerpt from The War with Grandpa

      This is the true and real story of what happened when Grandpa came to live
      with us and took my room and how I went to war with him and him with me
      and what happened after that.

      I am typing it out on paper without lines on my dad's typewriter because
      Mrs. Klein, she's my 5th grade English teacher, said that we should write
      a story about something important that happened to us and to tell it "true
      and real" and put in words that peoples said if we can remember and to put
      quote marks around them and everything....

      My little sister, Jennifer, just came in and asked me what I'm doing and
      I told her....

      "I think you should begin with me," Jenny said, "because I found out Grandpa
      was coming to live here before you even knew about it."

      "Good idea," I said.

      "And put in the story that I am very beautiful with long blond hair and
      lovely blue eyes."

      "I just did."

      "Now you'll have a good story," she said.
