Staff Reviews

This charming story is written in the perfect dog voice! Poor George wants to be good, he hopes he'll be good... but as we all know sometimes when it comes to chasing cats and chocolate cake hoping isn't enough. In high contrast color design, Oh no, George is a story of temptation and redemption... or is it?

— From Michelle's Picks


Bold, hilarious artwork captures the innocent charm of affable George, a dog who is trying to be good -- with disastrous results.

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. But when George spies a delicious cake sitting on the kitchen table, his resolve starts to waver. You see, George loves cake. . . . Uh-oh. What to do now? It's so hard to be a good dog when there are cats to chase and flowers to dig up What ever will Harry say when he gets back? 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.
