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.

About the Author:

William Joyce lives in Shreveport, Louisiana, with his lovely wife, Elizabeth, and their children, Mary Katherine and Jack. They also have a dachshund named Rose and something else named Rex. Mr. Joyce has produced two animated television shows based on his books: Rolie Polie Olie and George Shrinks. He also produced and designed the animated feature film Robots. Every once in a while he does a cover for The New Yorker.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 In his parents' absence, George dreams that he's small, and he awakens to find himself about three inches high. The understated text (largely the words of a note left to remind George to make his bed, brush his teeth, take out the garbage, etc.) is counterpointed by paintings with realistic detail in cartoon colors andoutstandinglyby their perspective: a mouse-eye view of the high adventure such boring chores become under the unusual circumstances. George's high-handed treatment of a malevolent cat, and the cat's near-revenge (thwarted when the shock-headed hero, under the bedcovers, pops back to normal size just in time for Mom and Dad's return) provides a little narrative line for the fun and excitement. Some witty touches and '50s nostalgia should please parents, who will root along with their kids for this updated and unflappable Tom Thumb. Treehorn, move over! Patricia Dooley, formerly at Drexel University, Phila .
