Description


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!

About the Author


Louise Yates began drawing pictures to go with stories she wrote at a very young age. About A Small Surprise, her debut picture book, School Library Journal wrote that it “will enchant and encourage those who usually find themselves too small to do many things and help them recognize their talents.”

Praise For…


"Yates uses words and illustration sparingly to set the pace for this jaunty tale book lovers will lap right up."
Kirkus (starred review)

"[A] gentle tale with a winning message . . . Young children can enjoy the book by themselves by following the charming illustrations."
School Library Journal (starred review)

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
