Hugless Douglas, For National Curriculum Early Years, Interest age: from c 3 years, Fiction, Picture books: character books, Picture storybooks


A brand new Hugless Douglas adventure from the critically acclaimed author, David Melling.

The fourth Hugless Douglas adventure in this bestselling series with 500,000 copies sold to date in 22 languages.

When Douglas goes on a best friend hunt with Flossie the sheep, everyone seems to have a best friend except him! Perhaps what Douglas is looking for is right under his nose...

David Melling is one of the UK's best-loved author-illustrators and his fourth book about Douglas the brown bear is as funny and compelling as the first. It combines brilliantly imaginative illustrations with an endearing sense of what it is like to be a small child learning about the world.

'A new Hugless Douglas book is always a cause for celebration.' The Daily Mail
