The extraordinary story of how one family, and one young boy in particular, are changed forever when Zayda (Yiddish for ?grandfather?) comes to live with them. At first the young narrator, Bill, is resistant to the all the changes in the house: Zayda spooks his friends, tries to get Bill to speak Yiddish, and demands strange foods like herring.
