Georgie, the gentle little New England ghost whose story began in 1944, with the publication of the eponymous Georgie, returns for his second adventure in Georgie to the Rescue. When Mr. and Mrs. Whittaker - the human couple whose home Georgie haunts - decide to visit the city, taking Herman the cat with them, Georgie and Miss Oliver, the owl, go along as well. And when Miss Oliver is captured by the police(!) and shipped off to the zoo, Georgie and Herman set out to rescue her...

Although I didn't find this quite as engaging as the first, I still enjoyed it as a gentle tale of friendship and loyalty, and appreciated the old-fashioned charm of Robert Bright's black-and-white illustrations. I'm a little sad to think that I never discovered any of the thirteen books about Georgie, as a young girl, as I think I would have really loved them! Goodness knows, I adored the Dorrie, the Little Witch books! Better late than never, I suppose. Recommended to anyone who enjoyed the first Georgie book, or to young children who like tales of friendly ghosts. ( )

"Once again we meet the friendly little ghost that haunted the Whittakers' New England attic in Georgie (back in 1944). This time circumstances project Georgie, the ghost, Herman, a cat, and Miss Oliver, an owl, into city life with humorous difficulties. Herman has been taken along by the Whittakers, when they close their house and go to a city hotel. And George and Miss Oliver are on their own. The owl winds up in the zoo, and her friends are at considerable pains to remove her. And again they are relieved when it is time to go home to their comfortable attic again. Nightblue pictures by the author provide additional details. Somewhat perishable format for the handling it will be subjected to." -Kirkus Review

When Georgie heard that
Mr. and Mrs. Whittaker were going to
the city and taking with them Herman
the cat he decided that he and Miss
Oliver the owl should also go. Who
would make the ghost sounds so important
for the family's comfort? This
sequel to "Georgie" tells of the experiences
that the three friends had
before they all returned to the country.
Small girls and boys who have
read and reread "Georgie" will welcome
this picture book about the new
exploits of the friendly little ghost.
