Review

"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 http://chopsybaby.com/magazine/?p=16005)

"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)
