When Dave loses his favorite toy, Dogger, he is very sad. But when Dogger turns up for sale at the neighborhood fair, everything seems all right until someone else buys him before Dave can get the money! Filled with humor and Shirley Hughes’s artful touch, this is a book for young readers to tackle by themselves, as well as a delight to read aloud.

Shirley Hughes has written more than 200 books, creating enduring characters like Alfie and Dogger, who have thrilled children and adults alike with their tales of growing up and everyday discovery. Her many awards include the Kate Greenaway Medal and the prestigious Eleanor Farjeon Award for her services to children's literature.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 children - sometimes happier-than-thou. She has illustrated more than 200 titles - she is a virtuoso" -- Kate Kellaway Observer "Shirley Hughes is a national treasure" -- Philip Pullman "Delightful" Financial Times "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
