It's hard work being good all the time. And it's especially hard for a dog like George! Harris is off to do some shopping. "Will you be good, George?" he asks. George hopes he can. He really wants to...but chocolate cake is just so very delicious and he does love to chase cat...What will George do now? Chris Haughton's distinctive artwork perfectly accompanies the innocent charm of affable George, a dog trying to be good - with hilarious results! Chris was named as one of the Booktrust's Best New Illustrators 2011. This is the second picture book from rapidly rising star Chris Haughton, whose bold art and psychedelic colour palette appeal to young children and parents alike.

  • This is a funny story about a dog who just can't seem to stay out of trouble, although he promises he won't.

  • Typical dogs. Do everything in the house and then you go out in public and they are well behaved. I wonder if there is a sequel that shows the opposite, where they do everything wrong in public but at home are saints.

  • We all know a dog like George (and some kids too). Very funny, perfect for storytime and just one of those books that make you smile.

  • A simple book about a dog who gets himself into trouble, even though he promised he wouldn't. George loves cake, chasing cats, and digging in dirt. He does all that in the apartment, so what will he do when he goes outside for a walk??? George may surprise even himself on this little excursion.
