September 2013 Book of the Month Can Doug the Bug find his way out of the terrible predicament he is in and, more importantly, can he get back to his best friend Trevor and make things up with him? Doug’s adventure is very exciting as he ‘boings’ into some unexpected places including the middle of a fried egg, a sponge cake, a pedal bin and then slap bang through a piece of toast. Doug has to take all the chances he can so that he can be reunited with Trevor and make up!
Doug and Trevor are best friends who love playing in the garden. But one day Doug gets dug up! Stuck at the top of a tower block can Doug find his way back to his friend or will he be trapped forever?
