David Hughes's book "Walking the dog" is a series of sketchy drawings, with sprawling handwriting and crossed out words. I chose this book because I like the idea of recording day to day thoughts and activities like talking to other dog walkers. I find thoughts intriguing, its fun to delve into his, I feel its a book that people can relate to and also represents peoples daily experiences. He's told by the doctor he's drinking too much and should take more exercise, and therefore is prescribed a dog. The book is all about their (dog and his) walks together, and his thoughts as his mind wonders on the journey. The illustrations are fleeting like this thoughts.
