About the Author:

Dick King-Smith served in the Grenadier Guards during the Second World War, and afterwards spent twenty years as a farmer in Gloucestershire, the county of his birth. Many of his stories are inspired by his farming experiences. Later he taught at a village primary school. His first book, The Fox Busters, was published in 1978. He wrote a great number of children's books, including The Sheep-Pig (winner of the Guardian Award and filmed as Babe), Harry's Mad, Noah's Brother, The Hodgeheg, Martin's Mice, Ace, The Cuckoo Child and Harriet's Hare (winner of the Children's Book Award in 1995). At the British Book Awards in 1991 he was voted Children's Author of the Year. In 2009 he was made OBE for services to children's literature. Dick King-Smith died in 2011 at the age of eighty-eight.

Review:

Publishers Weekly King-Smith provides frothy fun with this blithe tale about a precocious baby.  Four-week-old George shocks his sister, seven-year-old Laura, when he begins to converse in full sentences. . . . King-Smith mines his entertaining premise, delivering a steady stream of droll observations and snappy comebacks. Brown’s impish line drawings of the round-headed family provide the icing on the cake. . . . Beginning readers will eat it up.”—   Kirkus Reviews  “[A]  whimsical account of a child prodigy. . . Good choice.  Booklist  Laced with delightfully dry humor, a hint of cynicism, and subtle pokes at the silly ways adults behave around infants. Trust King-Smith to steer clear of the overly cutesy, too. George is no sweet kid: he is totally self-centered and annoyingly bossy. But the setup is great, and kids will relish both the freshness and the idea that usually all-powerful grownups have met their match in a little kid that still wears diapers. Judy Brown’s plentiful sketches add even more sparkle.  School Library Journal The story moves smoothly . . . and the humor is consistent. Kids will enjoy being in the know as the fawning relatives continue to babble in baby talk at him. Brown'’ pen-and-ink drawings (one on every page) keep up with the humor of the story. This amusing first chapter book would also be an entertaining read-aloud.  Bulletin, Center for Children's Books The premise here has distinct possibilities, but the humor is adult and the action, by necessity, is minimal. George is tyrannical little windbag, without the charm babies need to keep their caregivers caring. . . .
