Review:
George is a puppy rendered irresistible by the cartoonist Jules Feiffer's practiced hand. For the grown-up reader, the artist's simple text may read like a tongue-in-cheek spoof of those well-meaning infant information books that tell a toddler what he doubtless already knows: that cats say meow, ducks go quack-quack, pigs say oink, and so on. Beside herself when her pup seems able to say nothing resembling "arf," George's mother trots him off to the vet. This canny practitioner soon discovers the unexpected causes of George's malady. Feiffer's deadpan graphic absurdities will delight both young and old. This animated cartoon between book covers even comes up with a wacko surprise ending.
