This brilliant, bold and instantly recognisable picture book is all about George, a lovely pet dog who promises to be good when his owner is out.

This is all done on a level that a child would understand, giving them a chance to explore their own feelings on wanting to do things that they aren’t allowed to do. George keeps spotting things that he loves, and as you've probably guessed, he can't quite control himself so when Harrison comes home the whole house looks a mess. George is confronted by many things that he loves doing but knows he shouldn't, especially if he is to keep his word that he'll be good. e dog meets temptation, asks moral question, reader is asked what they think will happen and then George gives in to the temptation. He means well, but temptation keeps getting the best of him and before he knows it, the whole house is a mess!For example the vibrant orange and purple illustrations show George looking at a cake, "I said I'd be good, George thinks, but I LOVE cake. 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. The text is simple, predictable and repetitive to help emergent readers follow the plot and make predictions as they read. It operates as a non profit and aims to connect the worlds best designers with fair trade organisations. George said he'd be good and he wants to be good, but being good is tricky when there are so many fun temptations to be found when you're alone in the house.

The subject to which George is about to approach is illustrated in full block colour whilst the scenery around it is thin and linear. The book tells the story of a dog named George who continually disobeys his owner Harris who asked him to be good before he left him on his own for the day. Oh No George' came out in March 2012 and has been nominated for 6 awards in 4 countries including the Roald Dahl Funny award.The degree to which a particular child succeeds in this transition correlates closely with this child’s readiness for the rule-following and socialization that are central to being a participant in school. We read Oh No George by Chris Haughton in a PGCE English lesson and we all loved the rhythmic writing and the repetition used in the story.
