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
