Title:  Oh no, George!

Author:  Chris Haughton

Collection:  Children’s EZ Books

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.

The cover with its bright orange colors and the dog with the expressive eyes is enough to entice any child (or adult) to pick this book from the shelf at the library.  Readers will enjoy the simple story and the prompts to predict what George will do:  will he be good or will he succumb to his weakness?
