A collection of four tales of George Shrinks, a regular ten-year-old kid who happens to be only three inches tall. In 'If it Ain't Broke' George and Junior accidentally break the special sculpture Mum has made for Dad's birthday, but can they fix it? In 'Can We Keep Him?' George becomes friends with a mouse and leaves Junior out, who then runs away from home. The new friends have to get Junior back. In 'Close Encounters of the Bird Kind' George helps to save a bird from the neighbourhood stray and is rewarded with a new friend - Becky. Finally in 'Ants in the Pantry' George gets annoyed with Junior for trying to eat some of Mum's surprise picnic before she gets home. But only with teamwork can the picnic be saved from an insect invasion.
