Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
David is inconsolable when he loses his precious stuffed dog Dogger. Even the neighborhood fair can't cheer him up. When his sister Bella wins a huge teddy bear, David wanders off to a used toy stall-where whom does he see, but Dogger! David runs to find his parents, but can only find Bella. They rush back to the stall but when they get there, a little girl has bought Dogger and won't sell him back. With sisterly love, Bella trades her new teddy for Dogger, and Dogger is reunited with David. Hughes's scruffy illustrations capture a child's world perfectly.
Children's Literature - Sharon Oliver
Shirley Hughes' 1977 picture book about a young boy and his stuffed dog still qualifies as a classic. Dave has a stuffed dog with "one of his ears pointed upwards and the other flopped over." Dave takes Dogger everywhere. After an outing with his mother, brother and sister, Dave realizes Dogger is missing. The family searches the house to no avail. A few days later the family attends a school fair where sister Bella wins a super size teddy bear in a raffle. She also discovers Dogger on a table of used toys for sale. Bella runs to find Dave, but by they return to the table just in time to see a little girl walk away with her new purchase, Dogger. The children try to convince the new owner that Dogger belongs do Dave, but she is not interested in returning the stuffed animal until Bella offers to trade her newly won bear for the old dog. A sweet, happily-ever-after story, this tale of the tail holds up in 2010. Hughes' distinctive style of illustrating is endearing and just old fashioned enough to be charming. A 1977 winner of the Kate Greenaway medal, this book deserves a place in modern library collections. Reviewer: Sharon Oliver
