This Big Book edition of Shirley Hughes' classic picture book is ideal for sharing with groups of children.
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 regular size 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" (Observer)
"Shirley Hughes is a national treasure"
"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)
