Shortlisted for the 2013 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal and the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2013 Award-winning Chris Haughton’s George is a dog with a terrible habit of getting into trouble! He wants to be good and he tries to be good but, somehow, he keeps on getting into trouble! When he sees a delicious cake in the kitchen, how can he stop himself eating it? Oh No, George! When there’s lovely soil in the garden, he must just dig it up. Oh No, George! All readers will love George and his great instincts and terrible behaviour.
Oh No, George! by Chris Haughton
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!
Get a little taste of the book from this trailer:
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
