Praise for How Dogs Really Work!:
“One of the funniest books about dogs that I’ve ever read. The details drawings treat dogs like machines, there are some hilarious notes and details, yet the text has a serious side too.” Books for Keeps
Praise for How Cats Really Work!:
“Alan Snow’s cross-hatch cartoon style illustration is the perfect foil for his deadpan text. This book - and its predecessor about dogs - could become something of a cult.” The Scotsman
“Snow keeps up the pseudo-scientific tone throughout, making the book look like many genuine information books, even to the index.” Junior Bookshelf
“Very amusing and original, aimed at children, but would entertain adults too.” Cat WorldAbout the Author:
Alan Snow studied fashion design and illustration at Salisbury. He worked as a wedding dress designer, car designer and tree surgeon before becoming a children's book illustrator. He has also been involved in a number of computer animation projects, including a Peter Gabriel video.
