George is a puppy who does not sound like a puppy should, despite the efforts of his mother

HARPERCOLL

From acclaimed author-illustrator Jules Feiffer, Bark, George is a hilarious, subversive story about a dog who can't . . . bark! This picture book geared for the youngest readers is perfect for those who love Mo Willems's Pigeon series.

When George's mother tells her son to bark, George goes "Meow," which definitely isn't right because George is a dog. When she asks him again, he goes "Oink." What's going on with George? Readers will delight at the surprise ending!

This is a great book for teachers. I used it to teach my students inferencing. Its a funny and useful resource.

This book will have all ages laughing their heads off! Little George has gotten himself in a pickle that his mother can`t believe. It`s a great read-aloud that contains tons of potential for interaction with a group of kids from toddler through kindergarten age. The kids and adults
will be oinking, mooing and quacking along.

Fun book to share about a dog who can't bark, or can he!

A must read for all ages! After reading this book, and recovering from laughing, I began making animal sounds to my 4 year old grandchildren. More fun than saying words! Good book to read if you are down in the dumps.

Hilarious concept - animal noised - fun mom-vet-son dynamics. This book is a real delight. It's great illustrations bring to mind those in the Phantom Tollbooth.
WONDERFUL BOOK ALL AROUND!

This humorous story about George the dog will hold the interest of older preschoolers. Great illustrations with a surprise ending.
