Oh No, GEORGE!
by Chris Haughton
To be released 2012
I received a surprise package from Candlewick Press today with the book Oh No, GEORGE. I couldn't help but flip it open to read about the boldly colorful owl-eyed dog called George. Harry, his owner goes out and George copes with numerous temptations that test his resolve. As the author allows us to listen in on how George thinks, you just know trouble is inevitable. Chris Haughton, hits the nail on the head with simple text, making this a perfect early reader and read aloud. With humor and perceptive expressions, the author captures the essence of George- a "wanabegood" pet who struggles with the ultimate test of will power. Children will empathize with George's feelings, when he gets into mischief. A fun, lovable story for anyone who has tried to understand what goes on in their own pet's mind. This character should have a long life in the artful hands of Chris Haughton.
The copy of this book was furnished for free by the publisher. My review is my honest and unbiased point of view.
