Goodreads Summary:

Bark, George,” says George’s mother, and George goes: “Meow,” which definitely isn’t right, because George is a dog.

And so is his mother, who repeats, “Bark, George.” And George goes, “Quack, quack.”

My Thoughts:

George “aka Hermione’s magic bag of tricks” doesn’t know how to bark. Or does he? He just has a problem of swallowing other beings whole and then sounding like them. So that vet has to put on his longest and best latex glove to get those damn animals out of him. And he goes and swallows a damn human. George is going to be put down for this. He crossed the line when he swallowed a human. Although…I wonder what the experience was like IN his stomach. That human could totally make a fortune writing a book about his harrowing experience being swallowed whole by a puppy and then being made to say “Hello” every time someone told him to bark. AND the owner of George could totally make this a thing. Like a circus thing, but totally a thing. I wonder if the being gets fed when George eats or if they slowly die of starvation down there. I guess that would definitely need to be in the book by the first human experience. Food for thought.

Auf Wiedersehen!
