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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I love this book! The illustration is unconventional but totally effective. The text is minimal but also totally effective. And best of all is the effectiveness of the message of this book, which is one about personal accountability, expectations, and how actions effect those around us - all important lessons that children need to learn, and this picture book is a wonderful and fun way to get them thinking about them!
