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. - 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 - 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 - The Sunday Times
Dog Loves Drawing shows a much-loved character in a whole new light. - Maternity and Infant magazine
...a well produced book on a classic theme...the simple line-drawings may provide inspiration to try their own hand at following Dog's example. - School Librarian Magazine
