Book Description: An egotistical magical basset hound named George believes it’s his duty to train and protect his 12-year-old, a greenwitch named Karly. The world is full of people who don’t know how to use their natural human senses, and while teaching Karly to use hers, he’s also teaching her how to use her magic. George is the perfectly designed familiar.
I continue to scrape my claws into the damp ground, searching for more smell tastes and listening for my Girlpup. She’s panting like it’s a hot day. At least she’s catching up. I am satisfied she’s okay, and dig like a badger with my wonderful big paws and claws, the ideal excavation tools. I wish I was digging up the den of a rabbit. I slow to sniff.
There’s no rabbit here.
Something different’s calling me.
What the heck is it?
Dirt and roots pile up behind me, and my rear is now higher than my front as I dig. I scrape against rocks and try to push them away. They aren’t rocks—too long and thin. I wrap my jaws around one and toss it with a headshake out of the hole. I find another and do the same thing, until there is a pile of buff-colored things that looks like bleached driftwood.
George Knows by Mindy Mymudes is a fun story. It took a little getting used to reading in the viewpoint of George. I found myself hearing a silly, slobbery puppy voice in my head. 🙂 But this was an interesting mid-grade story…I loved the aspects of paranormal that were a part of the story. I plan to let my eleven year old read this soon, as I think she would really enjoy it as well. It is an entertaining mystery.
