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

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
