Georgie Bishop, fourth grader, is a dwarf. Georgie has a best friend, Andy, a class bully, Jeanie the Meanie, and a dog-walking business with Andy. The problems are that Andy suddenly has another friend and Georgie feels left out; Jeanie the Meanie is his partner for a class project; and his mother is expecting a baby, who will probably become taller than Georgie. Georgie, however, is a great kid, and comes through in fine style, showing, with humor, that what you can do is much more important than what you can't.
