George is an amazing Basset Hound who is the familiar of a 12 year old "girlpup" witch, named Karly. It is really wonderful being in George's head, because it is a kind, loving,very humorous, (and very HUNGRY) place to be! Seeing things from George's eyes (and smelling them from his nose) makes you think about your own surroundings a bit differently. This helps Karly learn from George all the things a familiar is supposed to teach a young witch!
George has opinions such as something being very old...maybe even from before breakfast time. He hates when Karly is on the computer because she can't pet him if she is petting the keys. And the adorable-ness just keeps coming!
My only request? SEQUELS!!!
The story itself isn't overwhelmingly exciting. A strange creature or monster has shown up in a section of park woods that an evil developer (of course) wants to turn into tract housing or something. The aunt and various other wiccans have the duty of "protecting" the woodlands, but the aunt now has to figure out what evil (?) creature has come into the location and how to evict or exorcise it. So you have basically "good wiccans vs. evil developers trying to save nature."
If that were all there was to the book, I wouldn't have stuck with it -- but again, George's narration made it all worthwhile. Really, this is George's story, and everything else is incidental. George is such a wonderful character that I'd happily read another book about him, even though much of the rest of the tale isn't much to my taste. There's nothing to alarm young readers particularly, and of course it all works out in the end. The biggest danger is that your child is likely to start demanding a Basset Hound...
It reminded me of books that from my elementary school, so expect a magical dog yarn written for a young person. My elementary school days are far behind me, but I thoroughly enjoyed the tale.
There is a problem in the wooded park. George, the basket hound, and his young witch friend, Karly, with Aunt Heather need to figure out the problem and solve it.
