This is a story that celebrates the non-conforming child. Instead of being a "doer" like most of the other kids he knows, George is a watcher. He watches television. He watches cars and trucks. He watches clouds in summer and snow falling in winter, and he watches big machines.
Unfortunately, George doesn't have any friends. No one really knows him--until the day when Sarah starts choking in the school cafeteria. While everyone else turns into watchers, George turns into a hero. People realize that there's more to George than meets the eye, and while the embarrassed hero becomes a bit more outgoing, he doesn't abandon his watching.
