Oh No, George! (Board)

Author(s): Chris Haughton

Board Books

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.

Chris Haughton’s vibrant artwork is just the tip of the iceberg: this board book edition of Oh No, George! Is the perfect follow up to Where is the Green Sheep? It’s an ideal length, repetitive (but not too much for us grown-ups) and most importantly it is absolutely hilarious.

One of our favourite board books and an essential for all toddlers.
