"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)

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.
Dog is a bookish little fellow, always reading, but when he receives a blank book in the post he gets very excited indeed. He knows just what to do, he gathers all his pens and pencils and begins to draw. First he draws a door and what do you know, he is able to step right through it! And that's the start of Dog's big fun adventures! He draws himself a wonderfully imagined world with some help from his little group of doodled friends.
The ending works out great and I think Dog will go back and visit his world and new friends again and again. We could very easily recommend this book and we will definitely be on the look out for more works from Louise Yates in the future.
The tale is full of fun, the support cast enticing and perhaps best of all the tale is one big adventure that not only gives the target audience a story of fun but also imparts the lesson of how much fun you can have with pen and paper. All in a cracking little story that is also wonderfully illustrated and one that had my nephews rushing off to create their own tale. Great fun.
