Description

The classic children’s book from beloved author and illustrator, Shirley Hughes

Dave’s favourite toy is a battered, but still very loved, cuddly dog called Dogger.

Dave and Dogger are inseperable. So when a mishap occurs, and Dave loses Dogger, he is desolate. But luck is on Dave’s side, and Dogger turns up at the school fair!

It looks as though everything will turn out for the best . . . until someone else buys him before Dave can get the money.

Will Dave and Dogger ever be reunited? And could an act of kindness save the day?

Praise for Shirley Hughes

Shirley Hughes is a national treasure – Philip Pullman

Hughes is a magical storyteller with an instinctive understanding of the mind of the pre-schooler . . . She makes the ordinary extraordinary – Guardian
