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

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.

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.
