The Lovereading 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.
SynopsisArchie 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 ...
‘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)
