It's hard work being good all the time. And it's especially hard for a dog like George!
Harris is off to do some shopping. "Will you be good, George?" he asks. George hopes he can. He really wants to ... but chocolate cake is just so very delicious and he does love to chase cat... What will George do now? Chris Haughton's distinctive artwork perfectly accompanies the innocent charm of affable George, a dog trying to be good – with hilarious results!
An entertaining romp.--Wall Street JournalThe individual's struggle for self-control is subtly conveyed in George's story, which manages to make old concept fresh thanks to George's winning personality and a vibrant, jazzy artistic style... 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.--Kirkus ReviewsHaughton's retro illustrations capture George's inner turmoil in both the position of his ears and the subtle shift of his eyeballs. Of course, there are no kids out there who struggle with resisting temptation, so this book won't resonate at all . . . right?--Booklist
