About this deal

Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Chris Haughton's distinctive artwork perfectly accompanies the innocent charm of affable George, a dog trying to be good – with hilarious results! George promises Harrison that he's going to be good, but then George spots a cake, and George loves cake, what will he do? Recently went on holiday with friends with children and this was hit with all of them when we did the bedtime story together. George loves to eat cake, chase cats, dig in the garbage and all sorts of other things that dogs love to do. which is a brilliant opportunity to stop and discuss what George should do, why he should be good etc.

Of course, there are no kids out there who struggle with resisting temptation, so this book won't resonate at all . However, as it is quite charming in its humor it would could also be enjoyed by those older with lower reading capabilities. has no ending, in fact it kind of depends on the fact it has no ending, and I commend it to you without reservation. Overall this is a nice paced story with beautifully vibrant illustrations that can be enjoyed by teachers, parents and children alike.

George's naughty behaviour will be familiar to dog-lovers, and is sure to resonate with children, who will soon find themselves giggling over this gorgeous picture book, and joining in with the repeated refrain of 'Oh no, George! Bold, bright illustrations and a story filled with a repeated phrase – “Oh no, George” – brought so much infectious glee to our two year old. we perceive him straight on allowing us to see his big puppy dog eyes and droopy ears as he knows what he is about to do is wrong. However, George's behaviour turns for the better when he goes out for a walk and behaves well without any temptation to do things that might upset his owner. that is rendered like one really, really talented with the old paint programs we used to use when bored with the computer (before the internet, kids).

Bold, hilarious artwork captures the innocent charm of affable George, a dog who is trying to be good — with disastrous results. This depicts the items importance and also illustrates its appeal helping the reader to slightly empathise with George. This book follows the moral dilemma's of George the dog who 'hopes' he'll be good whilst his owner is out. When George gets ‘found out’ he feels very guilty, in the same way a young child would and then he gets the chance to make things better. That George also gets the chance to do it all again the right way shows children that they can do it too and that we all learn eventually.Haughton's retro illustrations capture George's inner turmoil in both the position of his ears and the subtle shift of his eyeballs.
