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. Dog Loves Counting was released in the UK in March 2013. Louise is currently working on a new series, Toad and I with Random House and developing the Dog Loves series for TV with Random House Children's Screen Entertainment. 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. 'Even in a golden age of illustrated children's books, Louise Yates stands out as a superb artist and storyteller.' A. N. WilsonReview:
"These are wonderful books from a wonderfully inventive writer and illustrator" -- Philip Ardagh The Big Issue "A delightful story with a funny end. 10/10 Dog Loves Drawing is the latest book by children's illustrator Louise Yates. Dog loves books so much he opens a book shop. One day, he receives a blank book in the post from his Aunt Dora. As he begins to draw in the book, he whizzes off on a magical adventure. 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. Perfect for children aged 3 - 6 years of age. Best of all... The monster Could improve... Not a thing Basically... An imaginative book with great illustrations, perfectly capturing its target readership You can buy from... GBP10.99 Hardback Published by Jonathan Cape www.louise-yates.com" -- Chopsy Baby http://chopsybaby.com/magazine/?p=16005 "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" -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times "Dog Loves Drawing by Louise Yates from Jonathan Cpae at Random House Children's Books is an ideal and fun-filled book that will encourage mark making, drawing, wiritng and creativity in general." -- Martine Horvath Early Years Educator "Anyone unfamiliar with Dog Loves Books has two treats in store. Yates's sequel has a sparing elegance and proceeds with gusto. Everyone, she seems convinced, has a drawing in them. The pencils look so real that you could pick them off the page." -- Kate Kellaway The Guardian
