Product Description

Amazon Review

Dogger is the endearing story of how Dave's beloved Dogger was lost and found. Winner of the 1977 Kate Greenaway Medal, Dogger is a timeless classic which, in simple words and detailed pictures, shows the distress the loss of a toy causes a child, as well as the reality of family life. Filled with humour and Shirley Hughes' deft touch, this is a book for young readers to tackle by themselves, as well as a delight to read aloud.

A Big Book edition is also available.

Review

This is Hughes' most heartwarming picture book . . . Hughes has a kindly, inexhaustible eye - she misses nothing . . . Her drawing is invariably superb and usually describes a reassuring world for chidlren - sometimes happier-than-thou. She has illustrated more than 200 titles - she is a virtuoso.

Shirley Hughes is a national treasure

Delightful.

A heart-warming story . . . Shirley Hughes' warm and deceptively simple story is a perennial favourite among children and experts alike (Psychologies Magazine )

There are certain books that should be in every family's library and Dogger is certainly one of them (Books for Children ) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description

A classic picture book from award-winning author-illustrator Shirley Hughes (1993-05-24)

From the Back Cover

When Dave loses his favourite toy, Dogger, he is desolate. But when Dogger turns up at the garden fête, everything seems all right – until someone else buys him before Dave can get the money!

“Of all the authors to have made their mark in the last twenty years, nobody can be more familiar then Shirley Hughes…there are certain books that should be in every family’s library and Dogger is definitely one of them.”
