9 and up4 and up

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 children's 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?
