Dog loves books, but one day he receives a strange one in the post - it's blank! Soon, Dog realises that this book is not for reading, but for drawing, and before long Dog is doodling and drawing himself into a new world, full of friends and surprises.
Louise Yates writes and illustrates children's books. Her first book A Small Surprise, was published by Random House in 2009. Dog Loves Books followed in 2010, debuted as a New York Times bestseller and went on to win the Parents' Choice Award on its release in the US. In the UK Dog Loves Books won the 2010 Roald Dahl Funny Prize and was nominated (along with the more recent Frank and Teddy Make Friends, 2011) for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Louise's latest book Dog Loves Drawing is now available.
Louise read English at Christ Church, Oxford, and studied drawing at The Prince's Drawing School, London. She lives and works in London.
