Poor George really does want to be good and children can relate to this idea. It's also fun to get the children involved in deciding "What will George do?"

The book is clever in its deadpan delivery as George's actions contradict his initial promise. Haughton makes bold choices regarding color, shape, and scale. George towers over his owner in size, eager to please but rarely succeeding. Although his behavior might not be good, it is never intentionally devious. He simply can't keep himself in check.

George REALLY wants to be good, but when there are so many fun things to get into, being good is REALLY hard!
