Product Description

Review

"These are wonderful books from a wonderfully inventive writer and illustrator" (Philip Ardagh The Big Issue)

"Yates conveys emotion superbly . . . A fine tale for encouraging early readers" (Daily Telegraph)

"What a wonderful passion to pass on to younger readers! . . . This is a simple but heartfelt celebration of the power of imagination and the simple happiness that books can bring us all, young and old" (Niamh Sharkey Irish Times)

"Dog Loves Books was deservedly short-listed for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. [This] story of a book-selling dog better at imagining than shifting his stock is a delight" (Nicholas Tucker Independent)

"A wonderful book and an endearing story for any child or adult to read, particularly those who may think that books or them or they do not like reading. This would be an ideal story to use as a vehicle through which to engage and entice young children into reading" (Early Years Educator)

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By S. Barnes on 13 Aug 2010
Format: Hardcover
Not only is this a delightful picture book story for younger children, but grown-ups who love books about books will love this one too (especially booksellers!). Dog Loves Books is an appealing story, encouraging young children to read and share books and stories and Dog himself is a charmingly drawn and lovable character. Dog loves books so much he decides to open a bookshop and although he meets with a few set-backs he doesn't let these worry him, because when Dog has books all around him he is never short of friends or adventures. Highly recommended - 5 Stars *****.

Format: Paperback
I can reccommend this book wholeheartedly to grandparents, their own home-copy for visiting grandchildren. Forget stick men and those simplified drawings that dont challenge children, these characters are full of nuance and animation. Delighted to find Louise Yates' latest book, 'Dog Loves Books' has all the qualities of her first 'A small surprise', with gentle humour in word and image. It was the book I gave to all my grand-parent friends this Christmas in fact.

A beautiful and charming book- my current top favourite present for new babies, as you can never start too early and the parents love it. Wonderful and charming drawings and should become a classic!

Not as much content as Dog loves Drawing but I bought this one to go with it. It's still a fun read & most importantly, my daughter likes it.
