Badly drawn dog is fed up with his looks, so he decides to visit his friend, Doodle the Poodle. But on the way, he sees an artist's studio and here - the fun begins. The artist rubs him out - legs, head, even sketchy eyebrows, and starts again. The results are hilarious: the first style which the artist uses is cubist. Looks good - but on his way to Doodle the Poodle's house. Badly Drawn Dog finds that walking in a straight line is just impossible - never mind playing football. Pop art and post impressionist follow. Finally of course, Badly Drawn Dog goes back to his friend - the child who drew him in the first place. Boy...is he glad to be back to normal. This book will make children laugh out loud. In addition, it demonstrates different art styles with admirable simplicity.
