Dogger by Shirley Hughes will strike a chord with all children aged 3+ who have ever lost their favourite cuddly toy.
Dogger is a well-worn dog with crooked ears and a friendly face who means everything to Dave, so when he goes missing, Dave is devastated. Will our young hero ever find his friend Dogger? This timeless picture book has lost none of its appeal and is still a tale to which all children and their parents can relate.
Fans of Dogger will also love Judith Kerr's Mog The Forgetful Cat. Children's Laureate Julia Donaldson has named Dogger as one of her favourite picture books.
One of my all-time favourites to share with children. Loved by my girls and now by my grandchildren, this is a story that all children who have a well-loved cuddly toy can relate to.

Lovely story -
I remember having this book read to me when I was a child and I loved it then! This is such a lovely book, that any child with a favourite toy would identify with. A beautifully told story with lovely illustrations, I particularly like the ending, with Dave's sister Bella showing such kindness. My daughter, aged 6, has enjoyed this book from around 3 years old, and my 3-year-old son now really enjoys this story too. It is one of the classics.
