Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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!

Review:

"It's a little discouraging when Dog's new bookstore doesn't attract any customers, but Dog isn't fazed; he pulls books off the shelves and loses himself in reading. 'When he read, he forgot that he was alone.' Reading prepares him for bookselling, too; when a girl shows up looking for books, 'Dog knew exactly which ones to recommend.' Yates' (A Small Surprise) pale, candy-colored watercolors are the real attraction of this otherwise wispy story. Delicate pinks and purples encircle the insouciant Dog as he reads book after book, his inquisitive ears on the alert, surrounded by the creatures he reads about: dinosaurs, kangaroos, benevolent aliens in flying saucers. Yates conveys Dog's immersion in fantasy by picturing him hovering in front of a bookshelf in a small pink spaceship of his own when the girl, his first real customer, arrives. Dog's enthusiasm for reading and books can feel a bit heavy-handed ('He loved the smell of them, and he loved the feel of them. He loved everything about them...'), but he's a charmer. Ages 4 – 8. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Review:

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

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)

Synopsis:

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. Full color.

About the Author

Louise Yates began drawing pictures to go with stories she wrote at a very young age. About A Small Surprise, her debut picture book, School Library Journal wrote that it “will enchant and encourage those who usually find themselves too small to do many things and help them recognize their talents.”
