Chop, chop! Bits of the night flew everywhere.

George tried to steer the rocket, but he had no hands. How could he steer the rocket without his big strong hands? He stepped on the brakes, but he had no shoes. How could he stop the rocket without his shiny red shoes?

George looked down. His jumpsuit was gone. His body was gone. And so was his rocket. All he saw was a big dark planet. He was going to crash!

At the end of The True Story of George, George, a small plastic man, went for a ride on a rocket and flew apart. Now, with Katie and Mackenzie’s help, all his parts must find each other. But his head has been frozen deep in a bag of blackberries. Will he ever be whole again?

George Most Wantedis the second of three books in the George series.
Book one is The True Story of George Book three is George, the Best of All!
