Product description

Review

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

It's hard work being good all the time. And it's especially hard for a dog like George!

My one year son has a HUGE collection of books thanks to his over enthusiastic mummy. We have all the Mog books, Meg and Mog, Mr Men, Shirley Hughes, Allan and Janet Ahlberg...but this is his favourite. By a mile. As soon as we say the title, he gets excited and as soon as it's finished, he starts crying. He would happily listen to this all day. As soon as George does something naughty and we shout out 'Oh No George' he stars laughing.
We bought this after seeing it in The Guardian's top 10 children's books. It earned its place. You and the little people in your life will not be disappointed!

George said he'd be good and he wants to be good, but being good is tricky when there are so many fun temptations to be found when you're alone in the house...

George is like a toddler who's been left alone in a room for five minutes while you try to make a cup of tea/put the washing on/brush your hair/hide and eat a biscuit. He means well, but temptation keeps getting the best of him and before he knows it, the whole house is a mess!

We bought Oh No, George! on the strength of Shh! We Have a Plan and I'm sure it won't be the last Chris Haughton book we read together. The art work is so distinctive and the repetition in the text is great for getting little ones involved in 'reading' the story; Oh No, George! is full of questions which you can discuss with your little ones, getting them to guess/remember what happens next.

I had to buy this for my George. Though he isn't able to read yet, it will be a firm favourite. Nicely coloured board book.

I am not sure if the smaller format works as well as some of Chris Haughton's earlier books ("Shhh. I have an idea..."). The story is fun, as I would expect.
