It's a shaky landing for George Hogglesberry as he begins his first day of school on a new planet. What if nobody likes him? What if his ears fall off at recess? What if he turns into a tomato during the fall play? He never had to worry about any of these things back on Frollop II. But with the help of his gentle new teacher and understanding classmates, George may find that even a boy from across the galaxy can feel at home on planet earth.Ä¢ Gently and humorously introduces concepts of cultural difference, assimilation, and acceptance.Ä¢ Book includes "Pin the Nose on George" game-have a blast at your next party!Ä¢ Rich autumnal artwork, blending collage and paint, is perfect for back to school.
SARAH WILSON is the author of many beloved books for children. She lives in Danville, California.
CHAD CAMERON, like George, has trouble keeping his nose on. Luckily, this doesn't prevent him from creating lovely, innovative artwork, as he did in his previous book, Witchy's Turned-Around House. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
