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

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 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.
