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.

This sturdy board book could quite possibly have been written about our dog! Smelly louie does not like smelling clean from his bath and has to go on a hunt for his smell back. The pictures are so pretty and bring the story to life.

This is such a great book. It's about a dog who just gets washed and then goes about finding his smell again. It made us laugh lots as we have a dog which seems to do just that. Lovely illustrations too.

We have recently discovered Catherine Rayner's books and are starting to work our way through them.  

She quite beautifully creates animal character through illustration and simple story...this one is no exception. 

 Louie is not keen on how he smells clean and goes off in search of his usual, unique smell!!  He meets other wonderfully illustrated animals along the way.

A pure delight!

We loved this book - a funny story about a dog who doesn't like his "fresh out of the bath" smell so goes on the hunt to get "his" smell back - but does it work?! You will have to read it and see!!  A lovely book with great artwork - we had to read it three times back to back!

Sweet story about Louie the dog that doesn’t enjoy a bath or the clean smell afterwards. He like his own special smell.
Lovely pictures and the children enjoy the story.
