When they subsequently go out for a walk, George stops himself from chomping on the cake (that is part of someone’s picnic), stops himself from chasing a cat (who is surprised), and stops himself from digging.

This book offers questions about what George might do and on the next page direct answers aren't given. 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. It's such a simple story and so funny, it's definitely one I can see kids wanting to have a look at again and again, and I'm sure other adults like me would just love the sense of humour in this story too! To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. One of a child’s most important developmental tasks is moving from external regulation to self-regulation.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.

Anniversary Edition By Chris Haughton It's hard work being good all the time – and it's especially hard for a dog like George! The expressions are so easy to see and I love the simplicity of the pictures and how everything looks. To find out, read (and giggle) along with the story below - it's online and interactive, with lots of questions and prompts for chat with your little ones.

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.

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. At first I found the illustrations a little basic, I wasn't too keen on the computer generated graphic feel of it, but it's grown on me and the pictures and story work really well together. The very simple text of this book will delight young readers who can focus on the pictures to make meaning. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Chris Haughton now lives and works as an author-illustrator and designer in London. Very simple and based around bight oranges and reds they are eye catching and give you lots to talk about without being too distracting or too detailed for young minds.

Haughton's retro illustrations capture George's inner turmoil in both the position of his ears and the subtle shift of his eyeballs. The scrapes that George gets into in the book are something that most young children would consider doing. 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.
