9780062051851: Bark, George

What’s to be done? When George’s mother tells him to bark, the puppy meows, then quacks, oinks, and finally moos!

Like any good mother, she marched her son to the vet, who gets straight to work. Reaching deep down George’s throat, the vet pulls out – a cat! BUT the problem is not solved,and the vet continues his hilarious extractions, finding a duck, a pig, and even a cow.
At last, when all are removed, George utters an “arf”

Young readers will roar with laughter at this slapstick farce which conveys a full range of emotions. Feiffer’s simple line drawings set against pastel backgrounds are filled with expression.

Review:

When George's mother tells her son to bark, he meows. She patiently explains that "Cats go meow. Dogs go arf. Now, bark, George." But he quacks! Then oinks. Then moos. Becoming less patient and more exasperated, George's mom takes him to the vet, who reaches deep down inside the errant pup, and, much to everyone's surprise, pulls out a cat! Then a duck, a pig and finally a cow. George is cured, and barks at last! On the way home, his proud mother wants to show off her convincingly dog-like son to everyone on the street. But when she says, "Bark, George," he simply says, "Hello." This is the simplest offering yet from Jules Feiffer--creator of the delightful picture books Meanwhile and I Lost My Bear. Still, his cartoonish drawings are intensely expressive, alive and hilarious, and none of it will be lost on the youngest of readers who will giggle every time George fails to bark--every time the vet extracts a new animal--and at the final punchline, too. In a world of often overdone or underdone picture books, this fine Feiffer creation is just right.(Age 2 and older) --Karin Snelson

Review:

‘A delightful clear, humerous picture book… Great for sharing, with plenty of scope for joining in.’
Bookseller, 13 April 2001

‘A plot summary doesn’t do the elegant humour of this simple tale justice…a storytime boon.’
The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, issue 11/99

‘Feiffer’s character’s are unforgettable. Stephanie Zvirin, ALA BOOKLIST issue 8/99

‘Young readers will roar with laughter at this slapstick farce.
Barbara Scotto, SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL issue 9/99
