George Foreman: former heavyweight boxing champion, Olympic gold medalist, grill-master guru, ordained minister…and children’s book author. Let George Do It! is a hilarious story will make the children laugh out loud! Imagine the chaos in a household in which every son is named after the father (George Foreman did this in real life). Mom and her five sons George, George, George, George, and George plan a big backyard birthday bash for Big George. The four older sons pitch in to clean up, make the birthday cake, and decorate – while a mischievous Baby George messes everything up again! This book packs a ONE-TWO punch. ONE, enjoy the story. TWO, enjoy the pictures. Count how many times an older brother bathes Baby George. Then search for portraits of famous “Georges” cleverly inserted by illustrator Whitney Martin throughout the family home – George Washington Carver, George Harrison from the Beatles, George Orwell, and more.
There are many children's books on the market that are written by athletes, such as baseball player Alex Rodriguez (Out of the Ballpark), football players Tiki and Ronde Barber (By My Brother's Side), and cyclist Lance Armstrong (Lance in France). When boxing champ George Foreman decided to throw his towel into the “book publishing” ring, he wisely co-wrote with a more experienced author, Fran Manushkin, in his corner. The result is a knockout!
