Hugless Douglas and the Great Cake Bake

Hugless Douglas and the Great Cake Bake

Join Douglas on a honey hunt in the seventh Hugless Douglas adventure. This bestselling series has sold over 1.4 million copies to date in 26 languages!

The sheep are baking honey cakes and Douglas can’t wait to try them. He’s sure that food without honey just isn’t yummy. Can he ever be tempted to try something new?

David Melling is one of the UK’s best-loved author-illustrators and his seventh 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.

Hello, Hugless Douglas! was a World Book Day picture book in 2014.
