The Lovereading4Kids comment

June 2012 Debut of the Month.

From an important and exciting new author/illustrator - a hugely original new talent - comes a riot of canine fun, bound to attract appreciative tail-wagging from dog fans! Featuring a royal guest star at the end it's perfectly timed in 2012 for Jubilee celebrations. This is truly an irresistibly stylish picture book with minimal text and dreamlike illustrations. It's a book with real heart.

Synopsis

Archie by Domenica More Gordon

Archie leads a quiet life with his faithful pet - until one day, he gets a sewing machine and discovers a remarkable talent for tailoring. Word spreads, the phone starts ringing, and soon every dog in the park wants to wear his co-ordinating canine couture. Flounces, frills, florals, stripes - there's something for everyone, pedigree or mutt, dachshund or Weimaraner, even highly-connected corgis ...

Reviews

‘Rarely does a debut so justly and eloquently lay down its claim to be a classic; Archie is a comic masterpiece. Gloriously understated and beautifully drawn, it wins on every score.’- Alexander Armstrong (Armstrong and Miller)

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
