The Thing About Georgie by Lisa Graff. The thing about Georgie is he is short, really short–in fact, he is a dwarf. This was okay when Georgie was an only child, but now his parents are having another baby. How long, Georgie wonders, before Baby Godzilla (as Georgie likes to call his sibling-to-be) is taller than he is? If that wasn’t bad enough, Georgie has been cast as Abraham Lincoln, the tallest president, in the school play. Oh, and did I mention that his best friend is no longer talking to him? Life does not seem to be going his way. But the thing about Georgie is, there is a lot more to him than just one thing. In the end, he will surprise you. I loved this book and hope you will also love learning all the things about Georgie.
