"These are wonderful books from a wonderfully inventive writer and illustrator" (Philip Ardagh The Big Issue
A delightful story with a funny end. 10/10
Dog Loves Drawing is the latest book by children's illustrator Louise Yates. Dog loves books so much he opens a book shop. One day, he receives a blank book in the post from his Aunt Dora. As he begins to draw in the book, he whizzes off on a magical adventure.
This is a delightful book that shoots off on a captivating adventure. In much the same way young children's play takes fast, imaginative and sometimes bizarre twists, this book does the same as dog creates a cast of crazy characters and sets off on a journey.
The illustrations are fab and duck's final creation at the end a laugh out loud moment.
Perfect for children aged 3 - 6 years of age.
Best of all...
Not a thing
An imaginative book with great illustrations, perfectly capturing its target readership

"A fun and suspenseful story in itself. But the real joy of this picture book is that it is so inspiring. It is illustrated in pencil crayon (with a touch of watercolour) and every image is a work in progress, suggesting the potential for any reader to follow suit. And there is comedy in the pictures" (Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times

"Anyone unfamiliar with Dog Loves Books has two treats in store. Yates's sequel has a sparing elegance and proceeds with gusto. Everyone, she seems convinced, has a drawing in them. The pencils look so real that you could pick them off the page." (Kate Kellaway The Guardian
