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
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 )
