It's hard work being good all the time – and it's especially hard for a dog like George! A laugh-out-loud, visual romp from the acclaimed author-illustrator of A Bit Lost, Shh! We Have a Plan, Goodnight Everyone, Don't Worry Little Crab and Maybe.

A board book edition of the hilarious read-aloud romp by the multiple award-winning author-illustrator Chris Haughton, this is the story of George the dog. His owner, Harris, is off to do some shopping. "Will you be good, George?" he asks his dog. George hopes he can. He really wants to ... but chocolate cake is just so very delicious and he does love to chase cat... What will George do now? 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!

MEDIA REVIEWS

Howlingly funny, its luridly elegant illustrations will be in frequent demand; ideal for parents and grandparents to read aloud. - Times

The pictures are bold, dashing and minimalist against brilliant orange. The writing is cannily judged for reading aloud - Guardian

Set to a gorgeously rich colour palette of purples, orange and deep crimson, this is a delightfully playful tale with minimal text but oodles of personality that shows how the best intentions can go awry. - Junior

I think I have been in love with George from the moment the book publicist showed me the proofsof this book. Finally published, we can tell you about this lovely rogue. He tries to be good but it’shard work, especially when there’s a cat to chase and a cake to devour… - Angels and Urchins

With his strong vibrant colours, lively characters and distinctive writing style, Chris Haughton is quickly becoming one of our best new illustrators. - We Love This Book

Glorious, vibrant, expressive illustrations - CBI recommended reads of 2012

This is a visual romp - Independent

Lots of fun - Lytham St Annes Express
