Dog Loves Drawing by Louise Yates

First published in For children

AUTHOR and illustrator Louise Yates scooped the Roald Dahl Funny Prize with Dog Loves Books, and in this, her follow-up, we meet Dog once again, when he gets a promising parcel from his aunt in the post which looks like a book, but it’s not quite what he was expecting - it’s full of blank pages.

Following his aunt’s instructions, Dog uses his imagination and puts pencil to paper in his drawing book to conjure up a variety of quirky characters and adventures - which he magically becomes part of, drawing the story with his new-found friends as he goes along.

The author explores the joy of drawing and journeying into the realms of your imagination in a colourful and beautifully illustrated book, which is suitable for early readers.

Text cleverly interweaves with pictures - exuding all the excitement and fun of a story which is made up as you go along - from speeding along in a steam train to sailing in a boat and being chased by a monster.
