This is a DNF at 4%. The story starts off with the father, leaving the children, the mom spaced out, lost in her own little world, and then chapter 2 has the mom telling the kids is going to be a new daddy. I’m just not in a mood for something that seems so depressing. Add to that the art style looks like something that came from a semi talented high school student before they’ve had a lot of practice. Maybe this book is amazing like the cover says it is but I have no desire to find out.

In this book, George the dog makes various animal sounds that dogs don't make. He says, "meow," "moo" and "quack" until a trip to the veterinarian. Readers discover George has swallowed these animals and the vet pulls them out one by one. Does the vet solve George's problem? Winner of the 2000 Notable Children's Books award.
