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!

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!

George the puppy's mother wonders why he doesn't bark. When she takes him to a vet for help she is astonished by what the vet finds!
