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 and Shh! We Have a Plan.

In this hilarious read-aloud by the multiple award-winning author-illustrator of A Bit Lost and Shh! We Have a Plan, 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 proofs
of this book. Finally published, we can tell you about this lovely rogue. He tries to be good but it's
hard 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 *
A very funny picture book . . . charming * Lytham St Anne's Express *
Hilarious . . . young children will delight in George's attempts to behave in the face of life's many distractions -- Steve Voake * Well's Life *
