A brand new adventure about Douglas the lovable huggable bear!

Douglas is very excited about Rabbit's sleepover, but he collects so many friends along the way that soon it's a big squash in Rabbit's small burrow! Can Douglas think of a way for them all to get some sleep.

David Melling is one the leading children's author/illustrators working today and his third book about Douglas the brown bear is as funny and compelling as the first. It combines brilliantly imaginative illustrations with an endearing sense of what it is like to be a small child learning about the world.

    Praise for Hugless Douglas: 'A charming and endearing tale.' - Bookseller 'A thoroughly enjoyable experience.' Bookbag 'Douglas will no doubt become a hit as he is such a lovable character.' [Families South West] Another warm and charming story featuring the amiable but often bewildered Douglas. Wonderful. [Peters Gazette] The whole book works very well, being both funny and silly and yet, also, charming and relevant to small children. [Bookbag] Combines brilliantly imaginative illustrations with an endearing sense of what it is like to be a small child. [Liverpool Echo] Thoroughly enjoyable. [School Librarian]
