Writer Statement

Young Andy Beaird dreams of being a man of the law. He and his parents, Joan and Howard, have grown used to living with unwanted guests. Mrs. Elliot, Mr. Gree, and Mr. Anglin won’t leave their house. The trio drives them mad, filling their rooms with June Bugs and Rollie Pollies, throwing crumbled notes at their heads, and whispering in their ears all night. Too afraid their neighbors might find out, little alone call the authorities, the Beaird’s try to cope with their haunted family life until Mr. Anglin buries their family dog alive. When the neighbors call the cops, Andy is thrilled to greet them at the door, but the unwelcome guests think Andy should be the new sheriff in town.
