Review

George is a dog with a big personality and he LOVES cake, rubbish bins and chasing Cat. After he behaves badly when his owner Harris is out, he tries harder on a trip to the park - but will he be able to resist temptation?

Being a Booktrust Best New Illustrator 2011, you'd expect Chris Haughton's artwork to be amazing - but the sophisticated rich jewel colour palette offers both adults and children something beautiful to look at. George's facial expressions (for instance, a subtle positioning of his ears) and body language (a paw gently offering his favourite rubber ducks as an apology) are full of humour,and will prompt young readers to delve in and pick out all the funny details in the pictures.

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!'
