"Every school library should have Louise Yates' Dog Loves Books and Dog Loves Fairy Tales to encourage children to read and love books." (Parents in Touch)
"Yates is building Dog into quite a favourite, and the hero’s charming, reassuring shepherding of the gloomy, doomy imp is a gentle way to introduce the moral of the story ― that, sometimes, you create your own limitations." (Daily Mail)
