Marcus is cared that he will begin stuttering again, because his parents are fighting/arguing about killing the blackbirds that are eating up all the corn crop. Sabrina, the mother, sees the beauty, while Sam, the father, sees the damage. How can both be happy?? Marcus is their only child and all depends upon the success of the crop. What to do???

This is a fast paced story, written for confident children. It is sad, displaying fighting between the parents, and the return of Marcus' stuttering. Should he side with his father, who wants the birds killed, or his mother, who wants to paint their picture? What to do???
