Synopsis:
When Junior Blossom wakes up in the hospital, his last memory is of crouching on the barn roof with cloth wings tied to his arms, and of Maggie and Vern in the yard below, urging him to fly. That had been just before Junior spotted a police car approaching the farm in a cloud of dust.Meanwhile Pap, the childrens grandfather, sits in disgrace in the city jail. He was arrested for disturbing the peace after his pickup truck accidentally dumped 2,147 beer and soda cans (worth $107.35) on Spring Street.With their mother away on the rodeo circuit, it's up to Maggie and Vern to find a way to rescue Pap and Junior. How will they solve their family problems?

Review:
"Another wonderfully ebullient tale from Byars about ordinary children whose courage and perseverance lead them into astonishing situations...Byars is a master of perfectly chosen incident and phrase...Not just anybody, the Blossoms should be greeted with wholehearted enthusiasm."

Kirkus

Review:
"The ins and outs of this plot are so well woven, and often spliced with cliff-hangers that readers will (a) read fast to see what happens (b) laugh at the slapstick action (c) fall in love with this quirky family, and (d) savor the happy ending. A good run for the money, by any account."

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, March 1986
