The thing about poodles is that Georgie Bishop hates to walk them.

The thing about Jeanie the Meanie is that she would rather write on her shoe than help Georgie with their Abraham Lincoln project.

The thing about Georgie''s mom is that she''s having a baby--a baby who will probably be taller than Georgie very, very soon.

The thing about Georgie . . . well, what is the thing about Georgie?

From the Publisher:
Dealing with a new baby in the home, parents who wish he were musically gifted, a longtime bully who is now a partner in his school project, and a best friend who has dumped him, Georgie knows he's got a lot on his plate and is doing the best he can to manage it all, in an amusing coming-of-age tale about a young guy just trying to get by.

Praise

"A likable hero, Georgie is realistically drawn, and inventive suggestions at the start of many chapters will help readers understand some aspects of life as a little person. If a trifle earnest--every problem clearly presents an opportunity for Georgie to learn and grow--this is nonetheless a compelling portrayal of dwarfism, differences and growing up." 12/15/2006

"Georgie's anxieties ring absolutely true...and readers will readily embrace the complexity of concerns running through Georgie's head." 4/1/2007
