A delightful story with a funny end. 10/10 Dog Loves Drawing is the latest book by children's illustrator Louise Yates. Dog loves books so much he opens a book shop. One day, he receives a blank book in the post from his Aunt Dora. As he begins to draw in the book, he whizzes off on a magical adventure. 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. Perfect for children aged 3 - 6 years of age. Best of all... The monster Could improve... Not a thing Basically... An imaginative book with great illustrations, perfectly capturing its target readership You can buy from... £10.99 Hardback Published by Jonathan Cape www.louise-yates.com - http://chopsybaby.com/magazine/?p=16005
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 - The Sunday Times
