Jeanne Willis's thoroughly modern cautionary tale in the tradition of Belloc and Hoffmann, told in rhyming couplets, and hilariously depicted by Margaret Chamberlain; (the 'pong' of the protagonist exudes from every illustration). Georgie's aversion to soap and water, his descent into filth and his demise (in the dustbin) will be relished by the young and possibly shock those adults who have forgotten the delight with which they read the exploits of Harriet, Suck-a thumb, Jim, Matilda and the like.
