From acclaimed author-illustrator Jules Feiffer, Bark, George is a hilarious, subversive story about a dog who can't . . . bark! This picture book geared for the youngest readers is perfect for those who love Mo Willems's Pigeon series.
When George's mother tells her son to bark, George goes Meow, which definitely isn't right because George is a dog. When she asks him again, he goes Oink. What's going on with George? Readers will delight at the surprise ending!

"Feiffer's characters are unforgettable...the pictures burst with the sort of broad physical comedy that a lot of children just love. It all makes for a witty, laugh-out-loud play on the old favorite about the old lady who swallowed a fly." --ALA Booklist *(Starred Review)*
"Young readers will roar with laughter at this slapstick farce." --School Library Journal *(Starred Review)*
