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.
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

One of the loveliest children's books out there. And the illustrations are stunning.
The book arrived in great condition. Thanks!
What can I say, it's a classic. My son loves this book. He has an elephant (Ed) who pretty much fulfils the role of dogger in his life. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Owen
