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. which is a brilliant opportunity to stop and discuss what George should do, why he should be good etc. 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.

This work speaks to the same moral questions as Lobel's classic treatment of the interplay of desire and self-mastery, "Cookies" in Frog and Toad Together. is full of questions which you can discuss with your little ones, getting them to guess/remember what happens next. Inevitably George consumes the entire cake and the book continues with the scenarios of George seeing a cat and lovely soil. That George also gets the chance to do it all again the right way shows children that they can do it too and that we all learn eventually.

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. 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! It's good to open up discussions about what they'd do in George's place and what they actually should do in George's place! This book offers questions about what George might do and on the next page direct answers aren't given.

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. But that doesn't stop this from being a terrifficly adorable book on human nature and how and why we should behave and the results of giving in to what we want to do, when we shouldn't.In this hilarious read-aloud by the multiple award-winning author-illustrator of A Bit Lost and Shh! 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.
