Why is the puppy oinking and mooing? The answer might surprise you. Simple text, lively illustrations.

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. ( )

I cannot believe I have not reviewed this book before. Because it is a storytime standby and one that never fails to disappoint.

Even parents laugh. And THAT is the sign of a good book. Kids love the fact that George swallows animals whole ;) ( )
