What to Expect: Families, school, being unique
George is not looking forward to Family Night at school. His family is just so weird; he’s sure they will embarrass him. Will his little brother turn up in his ninja costume? Will his mom still be grumpy that no one likes her cooking? Will anyone remember the time his dad came outside to yell at them in his underwear? Will his sister make weird, kissy faces at her phone all night? George’s one consolation is that everyone else’s family seems to be just as embarrassing. George is fully prepared to have to hide under his desk—little does he know the most embarrassing person that night will be him!
All kids are embarrassed by their families at one point or another. Embarrassing George acknowledges the anxiety that can come with that feeling but also reminds readers that the things that make families embarrassing are the same things that make them unique and loveable. George is a relatable character with an engaging narrative voice, and readers will enjoy laughing and cringing alongside him as he describes his and his friends’ families. Dynamic, colorful cartoon illustrations relate the story from an outside perspective, allowing readers to revel in each of George’s pained expressions.
Embarrassing George is a fun and funny exploration of families and family relationships.
