About this deal

J'aime aussi les habiletés de pré-lecture qu'elle développe en feuilletant le livre elle-même et en étant en mesure de relater l'action dans ses mots: "Oh non, George il mange le gâteau! If you are under 16, please obtain your parent/guardian’s permission before submitting or ask your parent/guardian to submit on your behalf. 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!

For their first exhibition they asked 18 artists to each design a rug for the Design Museum in London.

I feel like the author got inside a dog's head - George WANTS to be good, HOPES to be good, but in the end, doing the thing he loves wins out. At first, she just didn't engage with this one and I think it was because the illustrations are very retro and impressionistic.

George said he'd be good and he wants to be good, but being good is tricky when there are so many fun temptations to be found when you're alone in the house. Bérénice adore la drôle de dégaine de ce chien qui n'a, comme elle, pas beaucoup de contrôle sur ses pulsions. It's good to open up discussions about what they'd do in George's place and what they actually should do in George's place!He then shows he has learned his lesson by abstaining from all of the temptation he meets on his daily walk, namely a cat and dirt and many of the same temptations he met previously. e dog meets temptation, asks moral question, reader is asked what they think will happen and then George gives in to the temptation. George keeps spotting things that he loves, and as you've probably guessed, he can't quite control himself so when Harrison comes home the whole house looks a mess. The book tells the story of a dog named George who continually disobeys his owner Harris who asked him to be good before he left him on his own for the day.

He then feels remorse for making a mess and upsetting Harry, this is the turning point as you see George’s character grow. Being a Booktrust Best New Illustrator 2011, you'd expect Chris Haughton's artwork to be amazing - but the sophisticated rich jewel colour palette offers both adults and children something beautiful to look at. The text is simple, predictable and repetitive to help emergent readers follow the plot and make predictions as they read.

It appears Harris’s words of upset at George's unruly behaviour have influenced George’s decisions, that is until George smells a bin! However, George's behaviour turns for the better when he goes out for a walk and behaves well without any temptation to do things that might upset his owner. This book at first appears to be a simple story of a dog being left at home, but it is so much more than that as the reader gets pulled into George’s emotions of excitement, deliberation, naughtiness, and remorse. This board book is small and has thick board pages that are filled with colourful illustrations and some text.

The very simple text of this book will delight young readers who can focus on the pictures to make meaning.

Oh No George' came out in March 2012 and has been nominated for 6 awards in 4 countries including the Roald Dahl Funny award. You can also watch our Storytime playlist on YouTube read by the likes of Ore Oduba, Adam Buxton, Fearne Cotton and many more.
