The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal
Join the smelliest dog you'll ever meet on his quest to find his Special Smell in this brilliantly funny picture book adventure from the award-winning Catherine Rayner.
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 . . . ?
Smelly Louie is a wonderfully funny and very messy story from the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal-winning Catherine Rayner, illustrator of The Go-Away Bird by Julia Donaldson. Full of Catherine's trademark humour and richy-textured artwork, this funny canine tale will be a sure-fire hit with children and adults alike.
A series of swirling, impressionistic full page water colour illustrations
Rayner turns out to have a nose for good, clean (or, in this case, filthy) fun.
Smelly Louie and his wonderfully whiffy adventures are full of Rayner's addictive humour and amazingly textured artwork.
