When Dave loses his favourite toy, Dogger, he is desolate. But then Dogger turns up at the school summer fair, and everything seems all right - until someone else buys him before Dave can get the money! This timeless picture book has lost none of its appeal and is still a tale to which all children and their parents can relate.

About The Author

Shirley Hughes was born and grew up in West Kirby, near Liverpool. She studied at Liverpool Art School and at the Ruskin School of Art in Oxford, before embarking on a career as a freelance illustrator. At first she worked as an interpretive illustrator, but she began to write and design her own picture books when her children were very young. Her first book, Lucy and Tom's Day, was published in 1960. Now living in London's Notting Hill, Shirley Hughes has illustrated over two hundred children's books and is renowned as a champion of children's literature. She has been the recipient of the Other Award, the Kate Greenaway Medal and the prestigious Eleanor Farjeon Award.

Industry 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 *
