Product Description


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


A delightful story with a funny end. 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.

" (Chopsy Baby

"Even in a golden age for illustrated children's books, Louise Yates stands out as a superb artist and storyteller" (A. N. Wilson Reader's Digest)

"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)

"Dog Loves Drawing shows a much-loved character in a whole new light." (Maternity and Infant magazine)

Book Description

A superb sequel to the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize: DOG LOVES BOOKS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Second `dog` book bought through Amazon 20 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was a real hit, a laugh out loud book, which six year old grandson read to himself, and then told the family the story! Doesn`t get much better than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dog Loves Drawing 14 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As my children loved Dog Loves Books they were eager to read about Dog's new outing and they were not disappointed. This is an excellent story and, as befits the subject matter, gloriously illustrated. When we last met Dog, he had started his own bookshop, which is now a great success. However, one day he receives a present from his Aunt Dora - a sketchbook. "May the lines you draw open a door to some wonderful adventures," she writes, and they certainly do. In fact, Dog begins with just that - he draws a door and then steps through to some wonderful and exciting adventures, containing a stickman, a duck, an owl, a crab, a train, a boat, a monster and lots of doodles! Dog discovers that not only does he love books, but he really loves drawing. I think this is an ideal read for 3-5 year olds and is a vibrant and colourful read, which will really encourage a child's imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dog Loves Drawing 5 Mar 2012
This is Louise Yates sequel to the award winning Dog Loves Books (Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2010)
It is impossible not to be captured by the energy of this book. The illustrations are delightful. It is colourful, compelling and imaginative. The adventures which Dog creates by jumping through a door, gives masses of opportunity for follow up activities and adventures. It is the perfect starting point for artistic activity and encourages everyone to have a go. It is a wonderful vehicle for children to create their own adventures. A creative gem from a talented author.
