Review:

Howlingly funny, its luridly elegant illustrations will be in frequent demand; ideal for parents and grandparents to read aloud. * Times * The pictures are bold, dashing and minimalist against brilliant orange. The writing is cannily judged for reading aloud * Guardian * Set to a gorgeously rich colour palette of purples, orange and deep crimson, this is a delightfully playful tale with minimal text but oodles of personality that shows how the best intentions can go awry. * Junior * I think I have been in love with George from the moment the book publicist showed me the proofsof this book. Finally published, we can tell you about this lovely rogue. He tries to be good but it'shard work, especially when there's a cat to chase and a cake to devour... * Angels and Urchins * With his strong vibrant colours, lively characters and distinctive writing style, Chris Haughton is quickly becoming one of our best new illustrators. * We Love This Book * Glorious, vibrant, expressive illustrations * CBI recommended reads of 2012 * This is a visual romp * Independent *
