Synopsis

Synopsis

A picture-book treat for the youngest dog lovers.

Dog loves books SO much he opens his very own bookstore. At first he’s short of customers. But that’s all right, because when Dog is surrounded by books, he is never short of friends—or fun. And when customers begin arriving, he knows just which books to recommend.

Louise Yates’s expressive little white dog—and his many expressive doggie customers—extend an irresistible invitation to the very youngest to try reading. It’s fun!

About Louise Yates

Louise Yates - Dog Loves Books
LOUISE YATES's first book, A Small Surprise, was published by Random House in 2009. Her second, Dog Loves Books, debuted as a New York Times Bestseller and won the Parents' Choice Award in the US. In the UK Dog Loves Books won the 2010 Roald Dahl Funny Prize and was nominated (along with the more recent Frank and Teddy Make Friends, 2011, and Dog Loves Drawing, 2012) for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Louise read English at Christ Church, Oxford, and studied drawing at The Prince's Drawing School, London. As well as illustrating, she practises other forms of painting and drawing, and in 2010, won the Prince of Wales' Award for Portrait Drawing at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters' Annual Exhibition. She lives and works in London.

"Yates uses words and illustration sparingly to set the pace for this jaunty tale book lovers will lap right up."
Kirkus (starred review)

"[A] gentle tale with a winning message . . . Young children can enjoy the book by themselves by following the charming illustrations."
School Library Journal (starred review)
