Review: One Little Dog


I can remember being scolded as a child because I liked to scribble in my storybooks. The illustrations inspired me and I wanted to be part of the story.

Charlie O’Shields has written the second book in the Sketching Stuff “Draw Upon A Time” series. The story is written in rhyme, and follows a lonely little dog who is looking for a friend. Along the way, the dog sees things, and describes them.

And, joy of joys! The reader is actually invited to draw & color in this book! On almost every page there is a place set aside for them to do just that.

The paper will handle pencil, pen, crayon and most similar media. Marker might go through to the back. I used watercolor markers, with just a swipe of water and there was a little bit of spotting that you can barely see on the back. The paper didn’t buckle or wrinkle.

There is a place at the front of the book to test out your drawing tool to make sure it won’t bleed through

This series is fun, inspiring for the beginning artist and just awesome all around. You can find One Little Dog on Amazon.

Don’t forget! July is World Watercolor Month!
