The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is the first book from Giles Hargreaves, son of Roger Hargreaves - creator of the Mr Men and Little Miss series'. This edition comes with a fantastic sticker sheet featuring Douglas in a variety of activities that only this unique hound can do!


Douglas by G.N. Hargreaves

Douglas is a dog. Not just any old, run-of-the-mill everyday ordinary dog, but an extraordinary dog. A dog in a billion. Douglas can drive, read, ski and play chess. But there's one thing he can't do. One thing he desperately wants to do. Can a little bird called Basil help Douglas achieve his dream?
