The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal
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. Shortlisted for the Greenaway medal, this funny canine tale will be a sure-fire hit with children and adults alike. In a chunky board book format, this edition of Smelly Louie is perfect for younger readers.
