However for George the cake looks just too delicious to resist and we are shown him having gobbled it all up. That George also gets the chance to do it all again the right way shows children that they can do it too and that we all learn eventually.

This book offers questions about what George might do and on the next page direct answers aren't given. As well as then abstaining from the same temptation later as he has learned his lesson allows discussion with the child about moral choices and why it is important to be good, especially when you have said you would be. Also love how she laughs at the last page every single time, I've not seen any other books make her laugh like that. 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. It resonates with anyone with blood pulsing through their veins--and especially with children, who are constantly being told what not to do.Very simple and based around bight oranges and reds they are eye catching and give you lots to talk about without being too distracting or too detailed for young minds. Another feature of the illustrations is that whenever George has spotted or is considering to do something naughty, we see only his profile view showing his purpose 'towards' something. The degree to which a particular child succeeds in this transition correlates closely with this child’s readiness for the rule-following and socialization that are central to being a participant in school. It appears Harris’s words of upset at George's unruly behaviour have influenced George’s decisions, that is until George smells a bin!

At three, children can often follow slightly longer stories but they'll still want to hear their old favourites again and again.

Overall this is a nice paced story with beautifully vibrant illustrations that can be enjoyed by teachers, parents and children alike. The two-page spread of George with his mouth open like some sort of gaping steam shovel, having just bitten off a third of the cake, is roll-on-the-floor hilarious.
