Summer Reading with Daisy: "Bark, George"

This week, I am bringing you a book that is sure to inspire non-talkers like myself.  Bark, George is written and illustrated by Jules Feiffer.  I love the story and the pictures of the little pup, George, are darling!
George's mom tells him to bark.  Instead of a 'woof', an animal sound comes out of his mouth!  Here, George says "Meow" (that's for you, Madi).
Poor George's mom gets so frustrated with him.  He just keeps talking in farm animal speak, not dog.  Here he says, "oink". His mom decides to take him to the vet.
Thankfully, none of our dog-tors stick their hands down our throats and pull out a PIG!  Poor George had all of these animals inside of him!  No wonder he couldn't bark!
There's a little twist at the end because George then says...
Hahahahaha - I bet you can guess what happened!  Wouldn't it be fun to talk in different animal languages?!


  1. You forgot to say "spoiler alert".

  2. We think he's multilingual! But if he's going to scare squirrels, he needs bark. Oink just isn't going to do it.

  3. That is deep ~ there could be a lot of different meanings in reading this book. I have a child who stutters who listens during our reading hour at the library this summer. Think I will buy him this little book.

  5. Nobody has to tell me to bark. Instead dey are always tellin me to shut up.

  6. Great book report, Daisy! My mum has this book too and she loves it!!

  7. George is a true inspiration!! I (Sammy) would LOVE to speak cat, that way I could communicate with my sister cats and firstly, convince them that I come in peace...then, perhaps negotiate a food exchange programme...and finally, let them know that I am an excellent snuggler.
