Dogger by Shirley Hughes

Recommended by Mrs Watson

Dave has a very special toy called Dogger. He is worn and threadbare, one ear points up and the other down but he is very loved. Dogger goes everywhere with Dave.

One day Dave loses Dogger and this is the story of how the whole of Dave’s family becomes involved in looking for him.

This is a lovely warm- hearted book which children will immediately associate with, especially if they have a favourite toy. It has beautiful, detailed illustrations in Shirley Hughes’ distinctive style.

It has a strong emphasis on the importance of family and of kindness.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
