Lovely story and great pictures
Dogger the book is so amazing. i loved it when i was a child and i still love it now. even now i nearly cry when am reading it....
A truly outstanding story which I have shared with my own children, with many children I have taught , and now with my grandchildren. It has lost none of its appeal over the years but continues to delight.
This book almost seems to transport you back to another time and yet my very modern children love this story and the pictures are fantastic
So pleased to see this book on the list recommended by Julia Donaldson. My children loved this book when they were younger (now 17 and 21). I "taped" myself reading it so that they could listen to it when I couldnt be there at bedtime and they heard it over and over again. Its a great story of the selfless love that can exist within families. The illustrations are beautiful and Shirley Hughes is an incredible story teller. Her stories are timeless and this will be enjoyed by all children for many more years to come.
