Up! Up! He climbed through the sky on a wave of white water. The wave licked the big sky like a giant tongue. It was the greatest wave in the sea and he, George the Brave, George the Steadfast, rode the wild thing.
George is hardly bigger than a child's middle finger. His knees and his elbows don't bend and his legs are fused together. When Katie and Mackenzie find him at the edge of the ocean, they are unimpressed, but George keeps turning up in their lives. And what may seem ordinary to a girl and a boy can be an awesome adventure if you are six centimeters tall.
The True Story of George is the first of three books in the George series.
Book two is George Most Wanted.
Book three is George, the Best of All!
