The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is the absolutely delightful story of George, a zebra who finds that he doesn’t much enjoy all the things his friends enjoy, like weightlifting and body building. In fact almost the only thing that George likes doing is to boogie! With straight forward language and short sentences this book is great to read aloud and for encouraging young children to practise their reading (and dancing of course!). The illustration style is wonderfully vibrant and complements the text by imbuing it with a wonderful sense of fun and happiness.
It's a George Thing by David Bedford
George spends most of his time with his friends Peachy (a gorilla) and Moon (a lion). Peachy and Moon are very boysy boys given to body-building and weight-lifting. Neither of these are George's thing - but what is? One day, walking home from another morale-crushing session of Rocks (weight-lifting), he hears some music coming from Priscilla the giraffe's river-boat. George's reaction is instinctive. This zebra was just made to boogie. He's a fantastic dancer! Trouble is, what are his friends going to make of it?A funny story about friends, fellowship, finding your own 'thing', and some very fancy footwork!
