However for George the cake looks just too delicious to resist and we are shown him having gobbled it all up. Inevitably George consumes the entire cake and the book continues with the scenarios of George seeing a cat and lovely soil. And his owner, Harry, has all the best hopes that George will be a well-behaved dog when he leaves him alone for the day.

This could be a great starting point for a discussion with the class to find out what they think he might do. The book tells the story of a dog named George who continually disobeys his owner Harris who asked him to be good before he left him on his own for the day. But I have edited this review because after a few repetitions, the simple story, with its punch line, hooked her and it became a favourite. Bold, hilarious artwork captures the innocent charm of affable George, a dog who is trying to be good — with disastrous results. Whilst you want to be annoyed at George, and probably ought to be, George perfectly captures every dog lovers dilemma - how can you be mad at George when he's so damn cute?

Have read this over and over and kids feel drawn into George's naughtiness, his having to say sorry, and then . There is an orange theme throughout most of the illustrations although there are some contrasting colours and I just love the way the whole book looks. My 3-year-old is never sure if George is going to be good at the end and that's what I love - that it makes him think about what might happen next and how it can change every time we read the story.Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Chris Haughton now lives and works as an author-illustrator and designer in London.

It’s our best-selling Feb half term show to date, exceeding targets and generating a huge amount of positive audience feedback.Freedom is secured not by the fulfilling of one’s desires but by the removal of desire…No man is free who is not master of himself. 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! Recently went on holiday with friends with children and this was hit with all of them when we did the bedtime story together. It's really about all dogs who just can't help themselves but eat everything in sight, chase the odd cat or dig around in the soil in your perfectly manicured garden. This book offers questions about what George might do and on the next page direct answers aren't given.

Very simple and based around bight oranges and reds they are eye catching and give you lots to talk about without being too distracting or too detailed for young minds. George is confronted by many things that he loves doing but knows he shouldn't, especially if he is to keep his word that he'll be good. Chris Haughton is the author-illustrator of Little Owl Lost , his debut picture book, which won the 2011 Marion Vannett Ridgway Award. J'aime aussi les habiletés de pré-lecture qu'elle développe en feuilletant le livre elle-même et en étant en mesure de relater l'action dans ses mots: "Oh non, George il mange le gâteau!I feel like the author got inside a dog's head - George WANTS to be good, HOPES to be good, but in the end, doing the thing he loves wins out. Chris Haughton's fetchingly funny story and vibrant, retro illustrations are sure to lure dog lovers of all ages--and anyone who has ever met a temptation too good to resist. Harry forgives George when he makes a mess at home, which I thought was very sweet; a lesson I need to be reminded of from time to time. Overall a fantastic book the images are full of emotive humor and George is an affable scamp even when perhaps not doing as he should.
