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

A simply beautiful story about a little boy who loves his teddy bear and then loses him. A story in which everyone will be able to relate to with their love for their own toy or special item.
Themes: Love, caring, friendship, sharing, relationships, heathy eating.
- Discussion of emotions: could ask questions to the children such as: would it be fair if Joe had no ice cream? How did Dave feel without Dogger? How would he feel if he could see Dogger but not get him? Why did Bella help? Would you help? Why is Dogger special? .
- Children could write a piece about what is special to them and why. They could discuss how they look after it to make sure they don’t lose it.
This time I bought it for my 3 year old niece and again it has worked it's magic. She adores it.
The pictures are nostalgic but still so true to normal family life and the simple story is so effective and meaningful to a child.
My favourite children's book ever and I'm sure I will be buying more copies over the years for more nieces, nephews and friends children.
