5.0 out of 5 stars But I love..., 10 Jun 2013
This review is from: Oh No, George! (Paperback)
I wasn't aware of the author's previous books or its status as a Guardian favourite - I bought this book purely based on the cover illustration: such an expression of doggy guilt, so simply captured. Usually, say when buying a record or a film, this tactic can be the kiss of death but, in this instance, it paid off.

The writing style is simple and easy to follow with a few words on each page (large enough to read without my glasses when this book is inevitably thrust at my face first thing in the morning) and, if you like the cover, then the artwork inside is as equally delightful. The story itself is all about choice: George is left home alone by friend/owner Harris and our doggy protagonist is then faced with a choice on each page and we're asked "What will George Do?". Predictably enough, George chooses badly, amusingly leading us to the "Oh No, George!" refrain of the title. This being a children's book though, forgiveness isn't far away and George is given a second chance to make good and perhaps some better choices. So, a gentle step into the massive world of decision-making or a study of potential compulsive behaviour for aspiring therapists everywhere? Either way, it's a fun book and a quick read and I've found that the more you emote George's thoughts when you read it aloud, the better the story goes. My two little guys (two and five) love it equally and I'm happy to keep reading it for them.

Recommended.
