Summary

From master storyteller Dick King-Smith, this is the hilarious story of a family turned upside-down by an unusually gifted (and demanding) infant.

Laura is amazed when her baby brother George starts talking to her when he's only four weeks old, particularly as he sounds like a grown-up! It's a big secret to keep from their parents and the rest of the family and leads to all sorts of comic confusion until George's first birthday - when he makes a speech to his startled family.

Critic reviews

"[A] whimsical account of a child prodigy... Good choice." ( Kirkus Reviews)
"Beginning readers will eat it up." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Laced with delightfully dry humour, a hint of cynicism, and subtle pokes at the silly ways adults behave around infants." ( Booklist)
