The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the Greenaway of Greenaways in 2007 and Greenaway winner in 1977.
Filled with humour and Shirley Hughes' deft touch, this is a book for young readers to tackle by themselves, as well as a delight to read aloud. It’s moving and inspirational on how to cope with a problem situation. A classic for every bookshelf and it will strike a chord with adults and children everywhere. (4-7)
The Good Book Guide Review. Little Dave's favourite soft toy. Dogger, is lost and Dave is so sad he can't concentrate on anything. At the school fair Dave sees Dogger for sale on the toy stall with a ticket for 5p on him. Before Dave can get the 5p a spoilt little girl buys Dogger. . . A touching story with evocative pictures and a lovely ending.
Dogger by Shirley Hughes
Dogger is the endearing story of how Dave's beloved Dogger was lost and found. Winner of the 1977 Kate Greenaway Medal, Dogger is a timeless classic which, in simple words and detailed pictures, shows the distress the loss of a toy causes a child, as well as the reality of family life.
'Of all the authors to have made their mark in the last twenty years, nobody can be more familiar than Shirley Hughes... there are certain bookss that should be in every family's library and Dogger is definitely one of them.' Books for Children
