Publisher Comments:

Al, a janitor, and his faithful dog, Eddie, live in a single room on the West Side. They eat together, they work together, they do everything together. So what's the problem?

Thier room is crowded and cramped; their life is an endless struggle. Al and Eddie are practically at eachothers throats when a large and mysterious bird offers them a new life in paradise. After some debate, they decide to accept.

Transported to a gorgeous island in the sky, Al and Eddie are soon living a life of ease and luxury. But they come to find that the grass can be a little too green on the other side. After a dramatic, nearly tragic escape from their paradise prison, both man and dog agree: there really is no place like home.

Possibly one of the strangest children's books ever written, this tells the story of an ordinary man who transforms into a bird. You'll love it; the kids will liove it. What more can be asked?

I have never read this book but Arthur Yorinks is hilarious. "Happy Bees" is one of my favorite children's books.
