Synopsis

Dog Loves Drawing by Louise Yates

Dog loves books, but one day he receives a strange one in the post - it's blank! Soon, Dog realises that this book is not for reading, but for drawing, and before long Dog is doodling and drawing himself into a new world, full of friends and surprises.

Reviews

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 *

About the Author
