The Thing About Georgie
by Lisa Graff

2008 Texas Bluebonnet ListSM

Kids' Wings Award for 2008

What is the thing about you? Are you skinny? Are you a good basketball player? Do you like spinach? Do you love insects? Everybody has something. The thing about Georgie is that he is a dwarf.

Georgie isn't like his parents. They are accomplished musicians. One plays the harp, the other the cello. Before he was born, they wondered what instrument he would play. Georgie can't play an instrument.

Georgie isn't like the other kids in his class. He can't do everything you can do, but he can do some things. Will he find what he can do to be happy in the world? What his thing is? What will happen when Georgie and his best friend, Andy, get into a fight? Will their dog walking business dissolve? How will Georgie handle having to team up with Jeanie the Meanie for a social studies project?

Georgie's growing up as a dwarf, but he shows that his abilities overpower his disabilities and wins the respect of his peers

The Thing About Georgie will start you thinking about how you might be different from kids in your class. What is the thing about you?
