Working class fairy tale

Boy in trouble meets gifted gargoyle and together they quest to find the boy's heritage, father, and place in the world.
As with other books by Zilpha Keatley Snyder, it's hard to differentiate between magic and reality here.
This book contrasts interestingly with Adam of the Road, in which the quest is just as desperate, but the boy must make his way on his own.
