Thing About Georgie

Lisa Graff (2006), 220 pages
Audience: 3rd Grade - 5th Grade
Category: Fiction
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
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.

The things that Georgie can't do really aren't important in the big picture. After all, Georgie can do lots of great things.
