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!

I only sell books.” The lady walked out. Dog was

alone. He waited and waited. Then a man came into the store… to ask for directions. When he left, Dog was downhearted. But not for long! He wouldn’t wait a moment more. Dog fetched a book from the shelf and began to read. When he read, he forgot that he was waiting. When he read, he forgot that he was alone. When he read, he forgot that he was in the bookstore. And when one adventure ended, Dog simply took another book down from the shelf and… a

new adventure began! So Dog was somewhere else altogether when… a customer came into the store to ask for a book. Dog knew exactly which ones to recommend. but most of all… he loves to share them! Louise Yates 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. “One of the things I love most about picture books is the silences, the moments when the text shuts

Her first picture book, A Small Surprise, is an inspired example of those moments of silence when the pictures have their say. In its rave review of A Small Surprise, Kirkus Reviews predicted that it “will be sure to have readers in stitches.… Yates’s debut is one of those books that grows on readers with repetition. Small children who feel they aren’t big enough to do anything will
