Publisher Comments:

He's smart.
He's swift.
He's small.
The heroic George is back!

William Joyce, the creator and many best-selling and award-winning picture books, including Dinosaur Bob, Santa Calls, and Rolie Polie Olie, presents a new deluxe edition of George shrinks. Now an animated Saturday-morning program on PBS, the classic picture book that started it all will charm readers of all sizes.Undaunted at finding that he’s shrunk to the size of a mouse, George starts in on his household duties, from brushing his teeth to taking out the garbage and looking after his baby brother—all Herculean tasks for this tiny guy in an oversized world. ‘Paintings with realistic detail and perspective show a mouse-eye view of what high adventure boring chores become. Parents will root along with their kids for this unflappable Tom Thumb.’ —SLJ.
