      Beautiful use of color. George is like my friend. She cannot pass up a cake without getting into trouble.

      What a lovely print from a favourite illustrator! I enjoyed reading your interview with Chris enormously, thanks for bringing his global blog tour to my computer. Now, to win the print would be the icing on the cake!

      It’s adorable! I only discovered A Bit Lost last week; it’s such a sumptuously lovely book.

      Oh my golly! My 18 month old little lady would LOVE this prize. ‘A Bit Lost’ is her favourite book. We’ve only just got Oh no George!’ and already she says ‘dog’ on every page. Ooh my fingers are crossed..

      What a coincidence, we covered and catalogued our new copy of this book today. It will be on display tomorrow and no doubt off on its first loan. The two of us sat gazing at each of George’s facial expressions and wondered just how Chris could get so much expression in what seem like deceptively simple illustrations.We have added it to our list of ‘favourites’ that we are keeping as a topic heading in the catalogue!

      Oh No George is already becoming a firm favourite along with A Bit Lost – beautiful colours! ‘Cat’ is getting the biggest smile at the moment.

      That is just THE most amazing illustration. I still haven’t actually come across Chris Haughton’s books in the library, but from what I’ve read of them I know I’m completely head-over-heels about them already (and I’m not normally known for my gymnastic skills). As a passionate believer in faitrade I particularly liked hearing about his fairtrade work in your interview with him – those rugs of his are stunning. Unfortunately though my budget doesn’t stretch beyond faitrade bananas, and you can’t put those on your floor.

      We LOVE Chris Haughton – we could spend hours poring over his books and talking about them. Both my boys love George and would be so excited to see this print hanging up. Fingers crossed!

      We got our 19mo daughter A Bit Lost to cheer her up when she was poorly and she ADORES it. Endless cries to read “baby owl!” as well as “uh-oh!” echoing around the house. Can’t say we’re complaining – gorgeous book.
