The Lovereading4Kids comment
Nobody smells quite like Louie. This pongy pooch has his own particular odour and it is definitely NOTHING like roses and apple blossom. After he’s forced to have a bath, Louie is determined to recreate his Special Smell so he sets off on a mission – what will he find? An old boot that smells like mouldy cheese? Some stinky bins? None of them are quite right … but what will happen if they are all mixed together? ~ Julia Eccleshare

Smelly Louie by Catherine Rayner
Louie the dog has just had a bath - and he is NOT happy about it. He smells all wrong. Determined to get his Special Smell back, he goes on a hunt for it and meets lots of smelly things along the way - a fox, some interesting dustbins and a marvellously muddy puddle to roll in. Will he ever get his smell back? And, more importantly, will he be able to keep it this time...?
Catherine Rayner is the Greenaway Medal-winning creator of Solomon Crocodile and Ernest. Smelly Louie is full of her trademark humour and richly textured artwork. Shortlisted for the 2015 Greenaway medal, this funny canine tale will be a sure-fire hit with children and adults alike. Now available as a chunky board book, making it perfect for younger readers.

'Rayner turns out to have a nose for good, clean (or, in this case, filthy) fun.' Guardian
'Online Smelly Louie and his wonderfully whiffy adventures are full of Rayner's addictive humour and amazingly textured artwork.' Lancashire Evening Post
