Synopsis

Oh No, George! by Chris Haughton

It's hard work being good all the time. And it's especially hard for a dog like George! Harris is off to do some shopping. Will you be good, George? he asks. George hopes he can. He really wants to...but chocolate cake is just so very delicious and he does love to chase cat...What will George do now? Chris Haughton's distinctive artwork perfectly accompanies the innocent charm of affable George, a dog trying to be good - with hilarious results!

This is the second picture book from rapidly rising star Chris Haughton, whose bold art and psychedelic colour palette appeal to young children and parents alike. A Bit Lost was winner of the 2011 Eilis Dillon award and Bisto Children's Book of the Year Award.

Reviews

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

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
