This book is about a lady and her dog. While walking her dog, George, he saw a squirrel and took off running. Mrs. McNosh chased after him until she couldn't any longer. She gave up and walked home alone crying only to find George inside waiting for her.
This is a hilarious book about Mrs. McNosh and her dog, who breaks his leash and leads her on a wild chase through the park. The repeating words in the book can be used as an audience participation device during an oral reading.
