He has worked for several large national and international advertising campaigns, and created murals in London, Dublin and Tokyo. I ran this one by Maddie (9) who chuckled at the voices we used, but she also liked some of the little surprises in the pictures. He means well, but temptation keeps getting the best of him and before he knows it, the whole house is a mess! He was listed in Time magazine's 'DESIGN 100' for the work he has been doing for fair trade clothing company People Tree.

For example the vibrant orange and purple illustrations show George looking at a cake, "I said I'd be good, George thinks, but I LOVE cake. This illustrations are simple but "funny as all get out", and I fell I love with the expressions on George's face!It is delightful for the tinies and delightful for the grown-ups, and its charm does not diminish on repeated readings which is vital in a kids' book. would make an excellent read aloud as it invites readers to answer the question "what will George do? My favorite is the ending of George next to a trashcan, leaving the decision up to the reader of what George will do next. George, the hero of this dog-behaving-badly story from Haughton (LITTLE OWL LOST), hits the canine trifecta: oversize snout, floppy ears, and an anguished expression. This board book is small and has thick board pages that are filled with colourful illustrations and some text.

However, as it is quite charming in its humor it would could also be enjoyed by those older with lower reading capabilities. Chris Haughton’s fetchingly funny story and vibrant, retro illustrations are sure to lure dog lovers of all ages — and anyone who has ever met a temptation too good to resist. Anniversary Edition By Chris Haughton It's hard work being good all the time – and it's especially hard for a dog like George! George is confronted by many things that he loves doing but knows he shouldn't, especially if he is to keep his word that he'll be good. It's such a simple story and so funny, it's definitely one I can see kids wanting to have a look at again and again, and I'm sure other adults like me would just love the sense of humour in this story too!the bright primary colors help to convey a sense of excitement and focus, as non-essential details are often white with only a small outline. Readers will also be able to follow the plot by studying George's expressive face as he feels many different emotions. is full of questions which you can discuss with your little ones, getting them to guess/remember what happens next.

George is a cheeky but loveable dog who promises not to get into trouble but intention and action don't exactly match.

Adapted from the award-winning picture book by Chris Haughton, this brand new show for everyone aged 3+ uses acrobatics, slapstick comedy, Sign Supported English and live music to bring George’s chaotic and joyful escapades to life. The one where George leaves the cat alone is a perfect example of the marriage between words and images in a picture book (check out the cat's eyes). The subject to which George is about to approach is illustrated in full block colour whilst the scenery around it is thin and linear.

Young children who struggle to follow the rules will feel a bond with George, and the story's present-tense narration and repeated refrains make this a natural for reading aloud. The degree to which a particular child succeeds in this transition correlates closely with this child’s readiness for the rule-following and socialization that are central to being a participant in school.Harry forgives George when he makes a mess at home, which I thought was very sweet; a lesson I need to be reminded of from time to time. George is a dog with all the best intentions, and his owner, Harry, has all the best hopes that George will be a well-behaved dog when he leaves him alone for the day. Haughton's retro illustrations capture George's inner turmoil in both the position of his ears and the subtle shift of his eyeballs. However, George's behaviour turns for the better when he goes out for a walk and behaves well without any temptation to do things that might upset his owner.
