Here is the story of a baby who begins talking -- at the age of 4 weeks! And it's not just the occasional word: George has a large vocabulary and plenty to say. From master storyteller Dick King-Smith, this is the hilarious story of a family turned upside-down by an unusually gifted (and demanding) infant. Illustrated with over 80 black and white line drawings.
