    7. Miss 3 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes We try to get different ones out every week or so it s fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new favourite authors.It s fun seeing George magically and imaginatively become small which makes looking after his little brother and doing chores interesting.

    14. The first thing that caught my eye for thi book was the enormous print for the name George On the cover is a picture of George, and he is the same size as the letter G in his name His name is also not capitalized, which I found a little confusing I am not sure why the author decided not to capitalize his name The word shrinks is in significantly smally font, almost drawing the attention to the small letters with the drastic change The first endpapers have white footprints that seem to be walking [...]

    17. The title of this story is playful The word george is in very large print and shrinks is in print much smaller I also find it interesting that there are no capitals in the title, including the boy s name This gives the reader a clue that this book will be about a boy smaller than the average size The end pages of this book are very creative If you took all the pages out you would see George s foot prints starting at the average size for a boy his age and then gradually getting smaller and smalle [...]
