Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Chris Haughton’s distinctive artwork perfectly accompanies the innocent charm of affable George, a dog trying to be good – with hilarious results!
Lots of fun * Lytham St Annes Express * This is a visual romp * Independent * Glorious, vibrant, expressive illustrations * CBI recommended reads of 2012 * 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 * 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 * Set to a gorgeously rich colour palette of purples, orange and deep crimson, this is a delightfully playful tale with minimal text but oodles of personality that shows how the best intentions can go awry. * Junior * The pictures are bold, dashing and minimalist against brilliant orange. The writing is cannily judged for reading aloud * Guardian * Howlingly funny, its luridly elegant illustrations will be in frequent demand; ideal for parents and grandparents to read aloud. * Times *
