When Dave loses his favourite toy, Dogger, he is desolate.

This timeless picture book has lost none of its appeal and is still a tale to which all children and their parents can relate.

Promotional Information

A classic picture book from award-winning author-illustrator Shirley Hughes tells the endearing story of how Dogger, the much loved toy dog, was lost and finally found again.

About the Author

Shirley was born in West Kirby, near Liverpool, and studied fashion and dress design at Liverpool Art School, before continuing her studies at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford. She then embarked on a career as a freelance illustrator in London, where she still lives today. She illustrated other writers' work, including Noel Streatfeild, Alison Uttley, Ian Seraillier, Margaret Mahy and notably Dorothy Edwards's My Naughty Little Sister series. Shirley began to write and draw her own picture books when her children were young. Her first book - Lucy and Tom's Day - was published in 1960, and she followed it with, among others, Dogger and the Alfie series. Shirley Hughes has won the Other Award, the Eleanor Farjeon Award, and the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration twice, for Dogger in 1977 and for Ella's Big Chance in 2003. In 2007 Dogger was voted the public's favourite Greenaway winner of all time. Shirley received an OBE in 1999 for services to Children's Literature, and a CBE in 2017. She is the first recipient of Booktrust's Lifetime Achievement Award.

Reviews

"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

5 of 5 Stars! '

I was so exicted as an adult when i saw this book as i clearly remember reading it at kindy as a child so the thrill of buying it for my toddler and having her enjoy it so much was immense! This book is gorgeous (especially as we have a 'special' rabbit who goes everywhere with my little one) and the generous and sharing ending is heartwarming too. Discover this gem or re-discover it!!
