A classic picture book from award-winning author-illustrator Shirley Hughes tells the familiar and reassuring story of how a much-loved toy is lost and finally found again. This new Book and CD edition is read by acclaimed actress, Olivia Colman.
When Dave loses his favourite toy, Dogger, he is very sad. But when Dogger turns up on a stall at the garden fete, everything seems all right - until someone else buys him before Dave can get the money!
Voted the public's favourite CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal winner, this is a tale to which all children and their parents can relate, brought to life by Olivia Colman's heartwarming reading.
“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 children - sometimes happier-than-thou. She has illustrated more than 200 titles - she is a virtuoso”
Kate Kellaway, Observer
