Award-winning author and illustrator, Louise Yates has created another beautiful classic to enchant and inspire...
Dog can’t get to sleep. He loves books so much that he just can’t stop reading. Dog tried counting sheep, but it’s not working - perhaps there are some other creatures he can count?
Soon Dog is off on an adventure, finding friends and numbers in unexpected places.
Louise Yates grew up in Farnborough, Hampshire where she began drawing pictures to go with the stories she wrote for school, and at a young age began telling people that she wanted to be a children's book illustrator.
She read English at Christ Church, Oxford, and studied drawing at The Prince’s Drawing School, London. Louise’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. Dog Loves Drawing has also been shortlisted for the Red House Children's Award, 2013. Louise is currently working on a new series, Toad and I. She lives and works in London and you can find her on Twitter: @_DOGLOVES
