Description

Louie the dog has just had a bath - and he is NOT happy about it. He smells all wrong. Determined to get his Special Smell back, he goes on a hunt for it and meets lots of smelly things along the way - a fox, some interesting dustbins and a marvellously muddy puddle to roll in. Will he ever get his smell back? And, more importantly, will he be able to keep it this time . . . ?

Catherine Rayner is the Kate Greenaway Medal-winning creator of Solomon Crocodile and Ernest. Smelly Louie is full of her trademark humour and richly textured artwork. This funny canine tale will be a sure-fire hit with children and adults alike.

Catherine Rayner is a talented illustrator with two new gorgeous picture books: Abigail and Smelly Louie, a dog who does not love having a bath! * Sunday Express * Smelly Louie and his wonderfully whiffy adventures are full of Rayner's addictive humour and amazingly textured artwork. * Lancashire Evening Post * Rayner turns out to have a nose for good, clean (or, in this case, filthy) fun. * Guardian Online * A series of swirling, impressionistic full page water colour illustrations * Independent *
