One morning, George wakes up to find he's shrunk to the size of a mouse. The simplest tasks -- washing the dishes, taking out the garbage, feeding the goldfish -- all require Herculean efforts, which the pint-sized hero in a modern day Lilliput attacks with unflappable aplomb. And now the best-selling George Shrinks has shrunk to classic board book size, so while toddlers might not be able to reach the cookie jar on top of the refrigerator, they'll find this book just the right size.
