We Love You, Hugless Douglas! Summary


We Love You, Hugless Douglas! by David Melling

The fourth Hugless Douglas adventure in this bestselling series with 1.4 million copies sold to date in 26 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

We Love You, Hugless Douglas! Reviews


The illustrations show a gentle countryside in mostly shades of green, grey and apricot -- a perfect backdrop for the picturing of all the animals Douglas meets * School Librarian *

Another warm and charming story featuring the amiable but often bewildered Douglas. Wonderful. - Peters Gazette

The whole book works very well, being both funny and silly and yet, also, charming and relevant to small children.
