About this deal

Kids will relate to this dog who has every intention of being good, but just can't help himself when tempted. 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.

is full of questions which you can discuss with your little ones, getting them to guess/remember what happens next. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Chris Haughton now lives and works as an author-illustrator and designer in London.

Harry forgives George when he makes a mess at home, which I thought was very sweet; a lesson I need to be reminded of from time to time.

Haughton's retro illustrations capture George's inner turmoil in both the position of his ears and the subtle shift of his eyeballs. Anniversary Edition By Chris Haughton It's hard work being good all the time – and it's especially hard for a dog like George! Freedom is secured not by the fulfilling of one’s desires but by the removal of desire…No man is free who is not master of himself. Inevitably George consumes the entire cake and the book continues with the scenarios of George seeing a cat and lovely soil. One of a child’s most important developmental tasks is moving from external regulation to self-regulation.Set to a gorgeously rich colour palette of purples, orange and deep crimson, this is a delightfully playful tale with minimal text but oodles of personality that shows how the best intentions can go awry. However for George the cake looks just too delicious to resist and we are shown him having gobbled it all up. He was listed in Time magazine's 'DESIGN 100' for the work he has been doing for fair trade clothing company People Tree.
