Kids will relate to this dog who has every intention of being good, but just can't help himself when tempted. Howlingly funny, its luridly elegant illustrations will be in frequent demand; ideal for parents and grandparents to read aloud.

Chris Haughton is one of my favorite picture book authors because of his colorful, unique illustrations and his ability to interact with his readers through storytelling. Overall a fantastic book the images are full of emotive humor and George is an affable scamp even when perhaps not doing as he should. 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.The two-page spread of George with his mouth open like some sort of gaping steam shovel, having just bitten off a third of the cake, is roll-on-the-floor hilarious. As well as then abstaining from the same temptation later as he has learned his lesson allows discussion with the child about moral choices and why it is important to be good, especially when you have said you would be. 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.

e dog meets temptation, asks moral question, reader is asked what they think will happen and then George gives in to the temptation. Overall this is a nice paced story with beautifully vibrant illustrations that can be enjoyed by teachers, parents and children alike. But I have edited this review because after a few repetitions, the simple story, with its punch line, hooked her and it became a favourite. In 2007, he was named one of Time magazine's Design 100 for his work for Fair Trade and People Tree. Recently went on holiday with friends with children and this was hit with all of them when we did the bedtime story together.The art work is so distinctive and the repetition in the text is great for getting little ones involved in 'reading' the story; Oh No, George! You’ve RUINED the place …’ With poor George in tears, Harris suggests a walk and George is soon faced once again with tempting situations; seeing a cake, lovely soil and a cat.
