LoveReading View on Archie

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.

Flounces, frills, florals, stripes - there's something for everyone, pedigree or mutt, dachshund or Weimaraner, even highly-connected corgis ...

Archie Press 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)
