Dogger by Shirley Hughes

Shirley Hughes is 90 this year and Dogger, one of her best loved picture books, is 40!  We read Dogger when my children were little, and over 40 years of publication, I expect thousands of children have shared this magical tale of a little boy who loses his most treasured possession and becomes re-united with it at the end of the story.

Dogger belongs to Dave.  But one day Dave loses Dogger.  He really wants him back, and with the help of his big sister Bella, he gets him back.

This special 40th anniversary edition of Dogger is in paperback with a CD version of the story read by Olivia Coleman.  It's also been published as a special hardback edition with a letter from Shirley Hughes and an extra special illustrated story all about Shirley Hughes and her storytelling at the back of the book.
